Biodiversity Survey

On Wednesday this week, year 4 and 5 returned to Goongillings Orchard to conduct a biodiversity survey.

The children worked as: ground bugganeers to survey invertabrates in the soil, botanists, bee spotters, bird spotters and butterfly spotters. They observed species scientifically, used keys and reference materials to identify them, and recorded their findings to complete to the survey below:

I hope you enjoy looking at the lovely pictures below of our children immersing themselves in the natural world as only children can.

Thanks must go to Mirte Greve once again for her commitent to the project and to our school.
