Asby Endowed School

Trip to Bankwood Farm

Class 1 children had a wonderful afternoon at Bankwood Farm, Appleby, learning all about habitats.  They began by colouring in an animal mask.  They then classified their animals into groups, looking at the similarities and differences between them.  This was followed by a trip to the woods to discover the plants and animals that make their home in the woods. After careful observations using magnifying glasses, the children then made their own ‘bug hotel’ to take home.  They also made a bird feeder using pine cones, lard, nuts and seeds.  The afternoon was completed with a story.
