Our topic has been Animal Kingdom this half term and to enhance our learning we visited Gibside, to learn all about mini beasts. The mini beast safari was led by staff at Gibside and we started the hunt in the walled garden, looking for mini beasts. We were given a clipboard, a magnifying glass and a pencil to tick off any creatures we spotted
. Then we went into the woods to continue our search. We looked under logs and found all sorts of mini beasts including spiders, wood lice, ants and beetles. We remembered to be considerate of the creatures and put back any logs we moved. In the afternoon we had a fantastic time playing on the strawberry castle play area!
