Land of the Fanns Community Action Fund - School Pond

Today the children visited the science area to help the volunteers from Thames Chase dig out holes for the new benches. They used a the spirit level to make sure that the observation table was straight and that it was the correct height for them to sit at to investigate their findings.

It was wonderful for the children to be able to have a go at pond dipping using the nets and hearing about what wildlife we can expect to attract to area, including frogs, newts, insects, birds, bats and other mammals.

We are looking forward to helping with planting at the end of the week and cannot wait to see our science area come alive!
