Frozen plants

These are some of the plants that are growing this month. We picked some, putthem in a tub of water and froze them. Then bashed them with rolling pins to get the plants out!!

Bees on teasels

The teasels are flowering and are becoming stripey. Very much like the bumble bees that are coming to visit them.

Dragonflies and mayflies

Our pond area is full of dragon flies, mayflies and damsel flies. We have been watching how they fly and hover. They can fly up to 60 mph !

We then made our own out of pegs and tracing paper, carefully drawing in all the veins in the wings. Lastly we stuck on the huge eyes. Most of a dragonflies’s head is eye! They have amazing vision which makes them efficient hunters.

Summer term at forest school

We are looking at what is happening in our forest school area. Everything is growing !

We had a look at all the things that have been planted and the things that are growing wild.

It is very warm weather and not raining enough so we watered all our plants that are in the containers and our new wildflower garden.
