We collected some items to catch invertebrates and pond living creatures. We went to the pond in teams and used nets to fish out the animals. Once we had got some we came back to the classroom and looked at them under microscopes.
We found midges, midge larvae, flies and water woodlice.
As part of the weekend we are working to gain the John Muir Trust award which is when we learn to discover, explore, conserve and share a place. We are doing this by getting outdoors and by completing Mission: Explore missions.
One Mission from the John Muir book is to imagine you are the first discoverer of something. If we had been the first person to discover the midge larvae we would probably have called it a Lightning Spasm Worm because of the way it moves.
