A busy day today! We started by finding out about the creatures that live in two of the ponds here at Stubbington. Following that, we built shelters out of branches. Mr. MacKenzie grudgingly helped by throwing water over two of them to test how waterproof they were.
In the afternoon, we explored the conservation area looking for tracks and signs of the creatures that live there. We then built small mammal hotels and put them out for the night. Hopefully they will have guests in tomorrow evening.
As an additional post, we also took time to say thank you to Miss Joyce for coming on the trip and helping out so much. The photos below go to show how much she does. One child, unprompted, described her as, ‘an excellent counterbalance to the teaching style of Mr. MacKenzie’. Another child said that she liked her hat.
