Mini Beasts Safari in Cismigiu Park

October 20, 2014

As part of our Cross Curricular lessons, the children have been studying and sorting mini beasts. Last Thursday we visited a beautiful park in Bucharest, the Cismigiu Park, and the children had the opportunity to experience nature as if they were scientists. We initially had a walk, looking at the different trees and bushes in the park and then safari began. The children went around looking for the mini beasts we talked about in class and tried to complete their work booklet with information and detailed drawings of the creatures they found. After a picnic lunch, the focus were the trees, seeds, and different leaves that were all around us. After collecting and discussing a variety of leaves and seeds, the children made some bark rubbings. All in all, an excellent day learning in the outdoors! Well done Year 4!
