During environmental club this week, we split into 3 groups. One group was doing the final round of cooking leek and potato soup, one group was planting seeds, filling up pots with compost and general tidying up and our group went pond dipping. We left the small pond well alone as this was where the frogs had laid all their frogspawn and cast our nets instead into the big pond.

What an amazing variety of creatures we found! We were lucky enough to capture lots and lots of newts but we also found water boatmen, dragonfly and damselfly nymphs as well as pond snails. All proof that our school pond is very healthy!
