Year 2 Visit to Hyde Hall

On Tuesday, Year 2 had an exciting and educational experience at RHS Hyde Hall. Despite some rainy weather, we enjoyed lots of hands-on activities which reinforced our learning about habitats in Science lessons. For the indoor part of the day, children were able to get a close up look at some organisms that had finished their life cycle, including butterflies, a field mouse and birds. They also exercised their creative muscles, making anatomically accurate insects out of clay, colouring birds and decorating a flower whose petals could attract bees.

Outside, children took part in a caterpillar hunt where they learned the importance of camouflage, looked at a number of different food chains and used a keen observational eye to build a safe bird’s nest.

We also enjoyed the stunning views of the area through binoculars and were able to spot some deer, hares and blue tits!

Thank you to the team at Hyde Hall for all their knowledge and expertise.
