On Monday Nursery visited the Hampstead Heath Education Center.
As part of our visit the children learned how to identify a Minibeast and then searched for them both in a garden and near a pond. Children had equipment such as nets, magnifying glasses, water trays and word mats to assist them. Afterwards we made clay figurines of mini beasts.
When our workshop had finished the children had a picnic and then a big play on the park playground. They loved this part of the trip, I was extremely impressed with the improved climbing and balancing skills of the class as well.
All very good preparation for another big trip on Friday!
