Dragonflies had a wonderful day launching an exciting and interesting week of scientific learning.

This morning Butterflies and Dragonflies had visitors as part of a ‘Science at the Seaside’ project.  This is a Devon wide project to encourage children to write and they took part in creative writing workshop using items found at either the seaside or the Mill Pond.  University of Exeter PhD students facilitated the activity and children studied the artwork of Victorian naturalist Philip Henry Gosse, who worked for some time in Torquay.  We aim to complete our poems and pictures during the week and will let you know when they are ready for viewing.

During the afternoon, we walked to the Mill Pond with Ladybirds and our wonderful Parent and Grandparent helpers.  Many thanks to all of you for a highly enjoyable afternoon of careful observations and habitat studies.   The weather was very kind to us and it was a fantastic start to our week of learning!  For further photographs, please look at Dragonflies class page.
