Cheshire Wildlife Trust- Bickley Hall Farm

Lesson: Science

Class: WILLOW CLASS: Year Three, Four, Five and Six Year: 2015 - 2016

Pond dipping - The children worked in small groups collecting pond creatures and recording what they found.  We then studied them in more depth on a big screen through a goose necked camera.


Dragonfly Workshop We looked closely into the life cycle of Dragon and Damselflies.  The children made a dragonfly on a stick to take home.


Newt workshop We were given a unique opportunity to get ‘close up’ with a great crested newt as we were allowed to handle them carefully.


Minibeast Hunting – Using the farmland at Bickley Hall Farm the children went on a Minibeast Hunt. They searched the grassland, hedges and trees using demonstrated collection techniques.


Thank you to Cheshire Wildlife Trust for a truly wonderful day.
