This morning we gathered in preparation for a marathon of activity – a bug hunt! As we proceeded to the astro turf we started off with team building exercises. Our diverse garden of wildlife creates a home for all of nature which we pursued on our hunt today. To tick off our checklist of mini-beasts we explored every inch of the garden using our hunting tools; a magnifying glass, bug net, and bug jars. We turned over rocks, shining a ray of sunlight upon many oblivious earth worms and woodlice (or as the children referred to them – rollie pollies) holding them captive in our bug jars before setting them free again – it’s safe to say we ourselves aren’t timorous beasties! After we had collected our squirming earth worms, beetles and spiders we gently picked them up and closely observed their distinctive features; their protruding antennae, transparent wings and their copious wiggling legs for more photos check out our facebook. Another adventurous and exciting day that took place at Beith Trust – well done everyone!
