There’s a worm at the bottom of my garden…

We’ve had a lot of wet weather in recent weeks. This hasn’t stopped any class from being outside but sometimes we’ve just adjusted or adapted the activities a little bit. The good thing is that a lot of different minibeasts rather like the damp, so looking for them has been a popular past time.

One class rather likes the song “There’s a worm at the bottom of my garden” so last week after a sing song we decided to make some worms of our own from clay.

Once each child had made their own, we gathered them on a tray. I think they make rather a fine collection…

We decided to take them to the wildlife garden…

Then we had a good think about where our worms might like to live. Each child chose a home for their worm…

Some were incredibly well-hidden…

The children had some very good ideas about where to put their worm…

I wasn’t allowed to photograph the worm which is hidden amongst the ground elder below. The worm had to remain out of sight… even of the camera.

Our next job is to create a simple sequencing book about this activity. I think the children will enjoy trying to find the worms on the last few pages.
