On Monday morning, Form 3 set out to visit The Hirsel Estate in Coldstream to investigate habitats and food chains with our wonderful host, Sally Fleming. The location and weather was the perfect setting for some great outdoor learning.
The day began with research into differing habitats including the lake, hedgerow, woodland and field areas. We studied each area to analyse if each were suitable for small mammals, birds or invertebrates.
We moved into a lovely woodland area to play a food chain game before heading back to the estate buildings for lunch. In the afternoon, Sally helped everyone make their own healthy and delicious pizzas which we all took home to enjoy.
Many thanks to Sally for a wonderful day out and to Mr Miller for his help throughout the day.
The children also took some photographs ......
