Nocturnal Animal Experience - KS1

5th February 2019

To launch their topic ‘In The Dark’ this term, Key Stage 1 have just enjoyed a nocturnal animal experience.

The main hall was set up with the habitats of nocturnal animals – bats, moles, owls, foxes, badgers and hedgehogs. The children wore costumes and became the animals, exploring how they might move, how they might see, and what they might do.

The children loved being a nocturnal animal for a morning, and experiencing what each animal is like. It was a great start to the new ‘In the Dark’ topic.

Next week KS1 will be enjoying an Owl Experience and get the chance to meet some real owls. Activities also planned are a hedgehog visitor, and a trip to the British Wildlife Centre in Lingfield.
