Habitat 2: The school pond
12th June 2020
During the last week, Year 6 have spent a considerable amount of time in the pond area. We have cleaned out the leaves and much of the pond weed and then filled the pond up (it had lost a lot of water in the hot weather).
This week, we have found the following creatures in the pond:
|Dragonfly nymph skin|
We also found the following plants:
|Yellow Flag Iris|
Surprisingly, we have not seen any tadpoles or frogs: they may have been eaten by the fish.
Our next step is to clean the paving stones around the edge of the pond: we will pull up the stones which are loose and put fresh cement in the area. We are also hoping that Big Worle are able to support us in funding an observation deck.
