On Tuesday we had another visit from Mandy to teach us all about bugs!

We started off by learning how to categorise by looking at their different features, such as their legs, segmented bodies and ability to fly. We also learned that a woodlice is closely related to a crab!

After soaking up all this new information, we went outside to search for bugs around the school grounds. We used some of the fantastic new equipment that the Durham Wildlife Trust kindly gifted us on previous visits.

We didn’t find too many as our current site is not very bug friendly, but we have lots of ideas for encouraging mini-beasts onto our new school field.

Well done Eco Warriors!
