Year 2 recently went to the Minsmere Nature Reserve, in Saxmundham, to look at animals living in their habitats. A truly idyllic place for the children to visit with a variety of different habitats. Some of the UK’s rarest wildlife can be discovered and there are plenty of activities to get involved in.
The children thrived on what was in store for them. They became adventurous in the ‘Wild Wood Adventure and Build a Den’ area (collecting wood and making nests), then made their way to the Discovery Centre to search out minibeasts – they found a selection of them and even got to hold them!
Further trails led them into areas where they could spot deer and other wildlife. The children then took shelter, out in the marsh areas, in the nature hides where they used their binoculars to spot different birds.
A great day in the outdoors had by all.
