Acers love worms!

 

 

Acers class have shown a real interest in digging for and looking at worms. They had been asking lots of questions about them…so we decided to find out a little more.

We learnt what worms look like, the different parts of their body, and how they help our soil. If you want to look at what we learnt, then click here- The world of worms PDF

Look at our wormery…and how we made it.

Then we added some leaves to the top and sprayed a little water to make the soil damp enough for the worms

The wormery will have a cover over it when it goes inside, so that the worms can live in the dark, just like their natural habitat.

 

We also checked the hedgehog home we made last week and talked about hedgehogs.

We decided to make our own little hedgehogs, using salt dough and natural materials we found in the forest.P1080591P1080589IMG_0316IMG_0322P1080590IMG_0325

Some children made bird feeders too.
