2 March 2016
On Wednesday 2 March we visited the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust site at Martin Mere, with our friends from Winmarleigh. Class one children heard the story of Sigrunn the whooper swan, then visited the Discovery Hide to see hundreds of whoopers for themselves. They also looked through binoculars to see the rings that are attached to the swans' legs so that their incredible journeys can be tracked.
Class two found out about how mammals adapt to live in wetlands. They observed the otters, making notes about their features and behaviours and then created their own mammals making sure they had all the necessary adaptations to survive in wetland conditions. They also studied the different species of birds around the Discovery Hide.
