Pond Dipping

On Wednesday, Sycamore Class went pond dipping for the first time this term! Mr Ottoway kindly brought in a wildlife identification book to help the children with naming the wildlife they found. It was the first time some of the children had ever done pond dipping and they had great fun clearing out the duckweed and searching for the mythical frog that Willow Class found last year!

The children also had conker fights! They used palm drills to make a hole in the conker and then the battles begun! Some of the children chose to make some really lovely conker jewellery, too!
Well done, Sycamore, for really excellent and considerate behaviour during this session and a huge thankyou to Mr Ottoway and Mr Hinder for your help.
