Year 4 Exploring Science
Last week Year 4 visited Park View as part of our science topic about habitats and adaptation. Julie, who works at Park View, taught us lots of interesting facts about the plants and animals you can find there. It is a great place to visit, right in the heart of Lytham, and even on a rainy day there is so much to explore and discover!
Here are some of the children’s thoughts about the day…
On Thursday we went to Park View and we were working on habitats and animal facts about slugs, woodlouse and bees. I found about woodlouse I never knew that woodlouse had 14 legs. Everything was fascinating and exciting! We went in to the Eco pod and Julie was there, we learned facts about mini-beasts and habitats. Later we made a mini-beast out of clay and sticks. I had a great time there.
I never knew that there are 25 species of worms in England. There was a green one and a stripy one called a tiger worm. There are occasionally some deer and a fox with some squirrels as well. At Park View there is a beehive, we could look through a window into the hive and see the bees working – it was fascinating!
While we were there we went bug hunting and we found lots of woodlouse and some little centipedes. We found three huge slugs and Ruby and Reef held one. We found two garden spiders and a Harvestman and lots and lots of worms – at least 50! I really, really loved it! After we did all of our activities we had an hour to play on the park equipment, it was amazing!
