Pupils in Year 1 travelled to Moss Bank Park to visit The HIVE, an educational study centre operated by the Lancashire Wildlife Trust. The HIVE allows children to explore and learn about growing food, wildlife and the environment.

The children had a great time investigating plants: learning about the different parts that make up a plan, what a plant’s needs are, and how they survive. They planted some sunflowers and radishes and did some smelling and tasting in the herb garden. Pupils also hunted for mini-beasts, made their own bug hotels and completed a fun scavenger hunt.

The weather was fantastic and the Year 1 children loved being outside all day!
