Recently Nursery went on a minibeast hunt to the Forest School area. We began our session by having a conversation about what kinds of minibeasts might live or frequent our Forest School and where we might find them. Children gave suggestions such as worms, spiders, slugs and snails! From our previous work on minibeasts, we knew to look in dark cool places such as under logs, leaves and stones. The children were careful and respectful of our environment too – e.g. rolling logs slowly and replacing them when finished, etc.
