Phase 3 explore WWT Slimbridge
Year 3 and 4 were introduced to their new topic with a trip to the wonderful Wildlife and Wetlands Trust at Slimbridge. They saw, heard and fed as many birds as possible and were able to use specialised sound amplification devices to listen to all the natural sounds around them. They also visited Otter World to see the three resident otters being fed, and learnt about other mammals and amphibians who inhabit the wetlands. The day was rounded off with a visit to Welly Boot Land where the children could wade in the stream and perch on the wooden climbing frames!
