Forest School News - Newt Spotting and Hammock Cocoons
Hedgehogs had a fabulous last Forest School session filled with lots of their favourite activities. There was fun in the mud, superhero play and great amusement to be had blowing huge bubbles.
Some of us spent a long-time bug hunting and we saw some really interesting creatures....the most popular one being the newt. We learnt about the stripey caterpillars who like to live on Ragwort and warn the birds that they aren't very tasty with their black and gold colouring. When they are bigger, they will turn into red and black Cinnabar moths. This discovery led to the hammock being used as a cocoon from which some beautiful rainbow butterflies and moths emerged!
