Part of our science work has been to find out about animals and their habitats, so we spent time on the beach looking for animals that would live there. Sadly there were very few animals about but we did find a very tiny crab, lots of seaweed and many different shells.
While we were looking we discussed the kind of habitat it was and compared it to the one we had seen at Ledston Woods. We decided that we probably wouldn't find the same animals here. This helped the children to understand the different habitats and micro-habitats. We also found out what is important to help animals and plants survive in their specific habitat.
We worked together in small groups to produce some very interesting results. It was hard work but lots of fun!
