A nature walk at Falling Foss

Y6 have ended their science topic of ‘Living Things and their Habitats‘ by going on a nature walk at Falling Foss. We walked along the beck from May Beck, looking at the woodland habitat along the way and stopping for a minibeast hunt.

We found lots of different invertebrates, including millipedes, centipedes, insect larvae, woodlice, spiders, beetles and worms. We also saw a speckled wood butterfly and heard a woodpecker. When we got to Falling Foss there was cake and juice waiting for us at the café, to refuel us for the walk back.

We are lucky to live in a truly wonderful place with such a wide variety of habitats on our doorstep, and it was lovely to be able to share some of this with Julia and Joanna, our Spanish visitors.

Thank you to Jack and Steph at Falling Foss Tea Garden for the delicious Funfetti cake and juice, and to Miss Havelock for coming along with us. We all thoroughly enjoyed our nature walk at Falling Foss!
