St Laurence CE Junior Academy students embark on wildlife adventure

Exploring nature in Ellington Park

In an exciting excursion into the heart of nature, students from St Laurence CE Junior Academy Year 4 and 5 delved into the wonders of Ellington Park to uncover the diverse array of wildlife and habitats within.

Equipped with enthusiasm and a range of scientific tools, the young explorers embarked on a mission to identify and observe the natural world around them.

Armed with binoculars, magnifying glasses, bug pots, and bug telescopes, the students set out to document the various species inhabiting the park. Utilising tally charts, they meticulously recorded their findings, creating a comprehensive survey of the park’s wildlife.

Reggie, a student from Joss Bay, found particular delight in exploring the park’s ponds and observing its aquatic inhabitants. He said: “I enjoyed experimenting with the different magnifying glasses in the water.” His fascination with pond life sparked curiosity among his peers, fostering a spirit of discovery and exploration.

Under the guidance of their teachers, the students roamed through the park, immersing themselves in the sights and sounds of nature. From fluttering butterflies to chirping birds, every encounter served as a lesson in the intricate web of life that thrives within the park’s ecosystems.

Mrs. Mountjoy, the SENCo at St Laurence CE Junior Academy, said: “Engaging in activities like this not only enhances our students’ understanding of science but also promotes inclusive learning.

“By immersing themselves in nature, students of all abilities can develop a deeper appreciation for the world around them, fostering a sense of belonging and connection.”
