Perse Pelicans get back to nature in local countryside
Perse Pelican pupils got closer to nature as they explored the picturesque Cambridgeshire countryside.
Reception youngsters visited the National Trust nature reserve of Wicken Fen as part of their topic ‘Beneath our Feet’, where they learned about things that happen underground and tiny creatures that live on the ground.
The children were engrossed in hands-on activities such as pond dipping and hunting for minibeasts and discovered more about the importance of the bugs they found in terms of the historic wetland’s ecosystem.
Meanwhile, Wandlebury provided the setting as Year 2 pupils enjoyed learning more about the flora and fauna of the local country park.
They found out more about the pond and woodland habitats and had a great time searching for minibeasts in the water and the long grass.
