Forest School – looking for ladybirds!

Going to Forest School this week was also like entering a jungle! Big thanks to the parent helpers who bashed down brambles and cut down nettles to create a safe pathway for the children.

It was worth the effort to see all the children exploring independently – looking for minibeasts, climbing trees and playing with friends. They also learned some facts about ladybirds. Did you know they:

  • have 6 legs, just like all insects
  • have a shell that opens out to be wings
  • can be different colours (not just red!)
  • eat aphids
  • lay eggs
