Our Super Year 4 Scientists had an amazing day out at the Far Ings Visitor Centre in Barton-upon-Humber. With the sun shining and the temperature perfect, we were welcomed by our host Emma who expertly guided us around the many wonderful habitats on offer at this fantastic site.
We started off our adventure by sneaking into the hide to watch some birds on the lake and the children were able to identify greylag geese, Canada geese, swans, and a tufted duck!
Our next mission was to find all different types of pond life, with each child grabbing a net and lifting out an array of creatures including small fish, toads, and a water scorpion.
To finish the day we went on a minibeast hunt. By carefully placing the insects into pots, we could examine each one up close. Using our science knowledge we now know that insects are arthropods, and that snails and slugs are molluscs.
We can not thank Emma enough for our special and fun day learning all about living things and their habitats.
