Year 5 had a fantastic workshop from the Royal Parks this week. The session was focussed on learning about invertebrates. During the interactive session the class learnt all in-depth about these creatures, which include butterflies, worms, centipedes and many more. Some children became the in-class bumblebees and nectar, to demonstrate pollination. Others became grass, a grasshopper and a bird, to make a food chain demonstration.
The class then learnt about how they can protect the habitats that can be found in and around London’s parks, and why this is so important. They learnt lots of new and interesting scientific facts during their session, and also had a lot of fun joining in the games and activities.
