The Green School Committee went on a tour of the Rediscovery Centre today. It was a beautiful sunny day as we set of!
We got to the centre just before 10 am and we met the Education Officer Roberta. We also met Sarah and Emily.
She explained all the fun activities that we would be doing.
First we played a game where we were otters looking for fish in a polluted river. It was great fun.
Then we had to be birds looking for worms in the garden!
Next we went ‘pond dipping’ looking at all the life forms in the centre’s pond. We also went on a mini-beast hunt on the roof garden.
After lunch we had a tour of the centre and made some bug hotels.
We had a fantastic day and learned a lot about biodiversity.
