We walked to Union Woods and explored the woods for the first signs of Spring.
We saw new seedlings emerging in the forest floor and the first flowers of Spring including Primroses, Violets and Dandelions.
Honeybees have awoken from their winter nap and were gorging themselves on nectar from Dandelions.
There were birds putting the finishing touches to their nests and filling the forest with music.
We found a pond that was overflowing with frog spawn but sadly the warm weather was drying up the water. We moved as much spawn as we could to a nearby drain which should ensure the survival of more of the tadpoles.
We brought some frog spawn back to our classroom and we will watch as the tadpoles hatch and gradually change into froglets which we will release in June.
