On 24th May Reception grabbed their nets and bug boxes and headed out to hunt for creatures great and small on their visit to the Look Out Discovery Centre. They learned lots of fascinating insect facts too. Did you know that spiders have no teeth and so liquify their lunch? Fly smoothie anyone?
The children learned about food chains and how all plants and insects depend on each other. Ottilie did a great job when she dressed up as a giant ant to demonstrate that insects have six legs while arachnids have eight. The class then explored the rest of the science experiments including water, sound, light and forces. A big thank you to the parent helpers who accompanied the trip.
