Foxburrow Field Day

14 Oct 22

Year 8 visited Foxburrow Nature Reserve last week during the co-curricular Field Day, taking part in a variety of activities. 

Exploring habitats involved learning to safely collect invertebrates and using simple identification keys to name common species found in a variety of habitats.  Using a variety of materials, they contributed to a collective invertebrate hotel, providing additional space for wildlife. 

Students were introduced to pond equipment including trays, nets and viewers for pond dipping in small groups; identifying their finds.  They also learned to use terrestrial invertebrate hunting kits, taught how to sample and identify their finds, followed by a number of Forest School taster activities; from connecting with the woodland environment to getting creative with natural materials and engaging in wild play.   

Tree line and leaf identification helped students connect with the woodland, followed by den building, hammock and rope swinging, fire lighting, whittling, marshmallow sticks and of course, cooking s’mores.
