For 2 weeks we've been learning about worms. Last week, we went down to our wooded area with spades and rakes. We put our “worm spectacles” on and went digging for worms together. We had so much fun digging in the sunshine and had a very successful time outside as we found lots of worms. We found some other creepy crawlies too.
After our very successful digging session in the wooded area, we went back to the classroom where we passed the container of worms around the circle so we could inspect them, before making our wormery. Some of us read the instructions about how to make a wormery. We took it in turns to add layers of soil and sand and finished off with some leaves.
