Students in Year 2 at Lyonsdown Prep School in London went on a trip Veolia Water Centre back in May, here is what some of them had to say about the experience.
I leant more about mini-beasts when I went on our field trip.
Millipedes move slowly because they eat plants and soil but centipedes move fast so that they can catch their food.
When I went to the Veolia Water Centre I saw an ant. Then I looked very closely at the ant and I saw it’s body and it’s head. I saw a newt in the pond, it was amazing!
It was amazing!
This term we went to the Veolia Water Centre. We went into groups and the first thing my group did was to look for small insects. It was scary. I saw red ants when we went to the field. I got stung by a stinging nettle.
This term we went to the Veolia Water Centre. It was a bit scary lifting the logs and looking under things. I had a great time finding the mini beasts.
