21/09/2017 – Bolton Abbey – Habitats workshop
On Thursday, Year Four visited Bolton Abbey in the Yorkshire Dales to explore habitats. During the workshop, we identified different types of tree using a classification key, this was tricky as the key had not been drawn to scale. Simon our workshop leader then got us to create a tree using our bodies. We talked about things that could damage a tree and why trees were useful. Did you know? trees provide us with chewing gum, rubber gloves, pencils, medicine, cork and chocolate.
Afterwards, we explored how acorns grow into trees and played a game in which squirrels ate some of the acorns, we discussed why sometimes forestry commissioners need to kill animals to protect the woodland. We thought carefully about food chains within the forest and discussed how food chains worked which will help us in our science unit.
When the workshop finished,we enjoyed a picnic accompanied by ducks who were trying to eat our sandwiches before going over a bridge to explore the abbey’s grounds and play games.
