Our Nursery Trip to Irchester Country Park

Monday, July 16, 2018

On Friday 13th July we had a lovely trip to Irchester Country Park. Parents, grandparents and carers came with us. A ranger call Angie organised lots of interesting activities.

First we hunted for bugs using large nets. We caught grass hoppers, frog hoppers and damsel flies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We used mirrors to see what it would be like to be a rabbit with eyes on the side of our heads. We listened to the sounds we could hear and we smelled different plants like mint and thyme. We were given a pot and asked to find various objects. We hunted for things that were hard, soft, smooth, bumpy and tickly.

Whilst we were walking we spotted some interesting caterpillars:

 

We were given small toy creatures who needed homes. We built them houses under the trees using twigs and leaves:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are some of the animals and their half built homes. By the time the houses were finished the animals were hidden safely inside!

 

Then we had a play in the play area and all had a picnic lunch. It was a lovely morning.
