Minibeast exodus saved by sign!
Mr Warren reported his dismay at the lack of minibeasts in the school garden just as his class were due to complete their science topic. The Year 5 class searched valiantly and patiently but to no avail. There had been a mass exodus of creepy-crawlies!
“I hadn’t planned on using the Classification Sign on our school playground just yet but it proved to be a lesson-saver! Children were able to talk about what would have been in our school garden, the habitats that suited the creatures as well as what had made them leave! It prompted great discussion regarding causes for habitat change and the impact on the life in the school garden as well as further afield. We have embarked on a wide-ranging project to help life return and children have a rota drawn up for checking on progress! I have never known a lack of a resource to produce such enthusiasm for learning!”
