Off pond dipping to the mill pond by the mill. We have done pond dipping for the past three years so I extended it by getting the girls to do more identification and record what they had found in a chart. The girls could point out two different types of water snails.
Walking to around the reservoir the girls chatted so much about the changes since winter in terms of nature, colour and feelings, refering to the winter poems they wrote.
Pond dipping was one of the first activities I did with the children when they first came out of school, so I could reflect on how far we have travelled since then...
