1st Schools in Spring event on Apr 17th, 2012

Tuesday 17th April was Galleywall nature reserves first Schools in Spring event. 

Over 100 children from local schools came and enjoyed some time out of the classroom with sessions of pond dipping and seed planting to complement their current curricular topic; "Life processes." Despite the threat of rain and even hail throughout the day; everyone managed to stay dry and were thrilled to discover some of the wealth of wildlife residing in Galleywall; from fresh water hog lice, pond snails and ramshorn snails in the pond to plenty of compost creating minibeasts hiding in their flower pots! A successful day all around - watch this space for more Galleywall schools events to come!
