Biodiversity Week

This week we have been learning about Biodiversity. Biodiversity is the variety of different species. To start our week, Stuart, the Biodiversity Officer came to visit us. He taught us about the timeline of plants and animals evolving. Next we had a Bee Workshop. We found out about Bees and their body parts.

Yesterday we went on a plant hunt because Fiona from Kew Botanic Gardens sent us a postcard to ask for help finding local plants. We went to Strawberry Woods. We had fun!

Today we have been learning about endangered animals. There were 5 groups. The Tigers, Polar Bears, Apes, Giant Pandas and the Butterflies. We had to complete tasks to receive points. We made badges, posters, models, songs, TV adverts and t-shirts. The Butterflies were the winners with 234 points! Well done to the Butterflies!

We still have a few activities left in our Biodiversity Week 🙂
