How many different species of animal are there in our school grounds?
This was the question Mrs Whittaker wanted help with. We spent the week outside carefully looking for animals and counting them. Each class made a tally chart each day which was added to the whole school collection. We were looking for animals in Parsonage Patch (under the logs), in the pond, in the minibeast homes, in the long grass, on the bird feeders, in the woods, on flowers and in our food traps. The week ended with a Saturday family showcase where families could picnic on the field and take part in more animal-based activities.
