P5 Trip to Oxford Island 16th June 2020
We are so sorry that we are going to miss our trip on Tuesday.
We have cancelled school work for the day, and we are providing some activities instead that we would have done beside Lough Neagh. You can do these activities in your garden, back yard or even in the park with an adult.
Minibeasts live in all sorts of habitats. Many prefer dark, damp spots in gardens and woods, so this is a good place to start your hunt
Lots of creepy crawlies live in trees and shrubs. Lay a piece of white cloth, such as an old sheet or pillow case, under a tree or bush and gently shake the branches. You’ll be surprised how many tiny creatures fall out.
Remember – bugs are very tiny, so be careful if you pick them up and always put them back where you found them.
2. Mini Beast Hotel: You will have learnt last week about the importance of mini beasts in food chains. Try making a mini beast hotel, there are some ideas on the sheet below this page.
3. Have a picnic: hopefully, the weather will be good. Can you have a picnic outside somewhere?
We would love to see some photos of your lockdown school trip day, please send them into the website or via your dojo.
We hope you have a lovely day,
