In our Science topic, we have been learning about ‘Our Local Environment’ so today we went on a short trip across the road to Waterlow Park. We used maps to help us navigate around the park. We were on the lookout for living things, their habitats, minibeasts and micro-habitats. At the pond, we saw lots of ducks and even some gulls. Prior to our visit, we also conducted some research on the different trees that can be found in Waterlow Park. When we got there, some of us were able to identify them when we were walking around. We saw yew, holly, oak, pines and many others. They were different shapes and sizes and also had different leaves. Some even had berries, bracks and catkins. It was really enjoyable to get out and explore a local nature area that is so close to our school!
