As part of their latest science topic on animals, Jupiter Class had a wonderful trip to Queen Elizabeth Country Park. They had a fun-packed day with lots of opportunities to learn and play outdoors.
Our first activity involved us turning ourselves into human caterpillars! Each of us wore a blindfold and our leader (who wasn’t wearing a blindfold!) had to then carefully lead us to our next destination. This caused lots and lots of giggles and gasps!
When we took our blindfolds off we were surprised to find that we had travelled from a grassy field, up a stony hill and into a forest! Our first activity in the forest was a minibeast hunt!
After looking at all the different minibeasts that we had found, we let them go back to their homes and then set to work on our next challenge – constructing a mini-beast collage using the things that were found on the forest floor. Can you guess what they are?
As we still had a bit of time before lunch we decided to finish the morning with a nature scavenger hunt.
After lunch we had great fun together in the play area as a treat for being so sensible in the morning.
We had a superb time at Q.E.C.P. and would like to say a HUGE thank you to our fabulous team of volunteer helpers.
