Children go wild for dragonfly day
Published on 23/05/19
Charles Darwin Primary pupils have discovered that they don’t need to go far from home to see some of Britain’s rarest wildlife.
Georgie and Finn from the Norfolk Wildlife Trust visited the Reception children to show how the county is home to wildlife such as the Norfolk Hawker dragonfly, an endangered species which lives in the Broads and north Suffolk.
The children found out about the Norfolk Hawker’s favourite wetland habitats and crafted their very own dragonflies using pipe cleaners.
Over the past weeks the pupils have explored nature’s life cycles close up as the class’s tadpoles have been busy turning into frogs.
They will be getting out of the classroom to spot even more wildlife in a trip to Pensthorpe Natural Park later in the summer term.
