EYFS Visit Stover Country Park

5th March 2019
Our Early Years Foundation Stage children had a wonderful time at Stover Country Park yesterday. The fog cleared to reveal the wonders of the park and its inhabitants. The day started by feeding the ducks and exploring the giant lakes and ponds. Pupils also went on a mini-beast hunt – finding millipedes, centipedes, spiders, a small lizard and many more tiny woodland guests hidden amongst the logs and Forest fauna.
 
Laura, the ranger, then led us cautiously through the swishy swashy grass, across the squelchy mud and into the dark woods on a bear hunt around the park! Thankfully, the bear was extremely friendly and we finished the trip off with a packed lunch in the visitor center.
 
Both Nursery and Reception Class received a special gift at the end of the morning and have been given frog spawn to bring home and nurture in the classroom. Watch this space for the release of our Stover residents coming soon into our school pond!
 
A big thank you to Laura and her team, our parent helpers, who came along to support our youngest learners, and everyone who helped to make this such an enjoyable learning experience.

Where to next?
