Maples make a wormery…and more

Today Maples found out lots of facts about worms. You can see what they learnt here…The world of worms PDF

Outside, they worked together to create a wormery, by layering soil and sand in our special worm house.P1120345P1120349P1120361P1120368P1120388

They then found and added our very own ‘superworms’ from our digging pit…and after learning about the worm’s anatomy, some children were able to identify the head and the smooth clitellum (where baby worms are produced)  Some children were keen to hold the worms for a short time…and were quite fascinated in watching them squirm.P1120384P1120400P1120395P1120352

When the wormery was complete, we remembered to spray a little water on top to keep the soil damp and added some leaves and food scraps on top. The worms will now drag these down into the soil. We’re looking forward to watching this over the next few weeks. P1120407P1120412P1120411P1120416

Some children were very creative today. They too worked together to make some of the Superworm story characters out of natural resources from the forest floor. Look how great these ‘pictures’ are…We have a caterpillar, a worm, a butterfly, a beetle and a spider! P1120372P1120383P1120355P1120404P1120406P1120366P1120347
