TB this week - 27/06/22

This week, we've had a big focus on the school pond. For weeks, she's been out of action due to a blanket weed invasion...but last week, myself, Garry and Rufus managed to clear it.

So...dipping commenced and we discovered wonderful things: dragonfly and damselfly larvae, mayfly nymphs, greater and lesser waterboatmen, hog-louse...but most amazingly...oodles of stickleback fry and several mature male sticklebacks in their breeding colours (red and blue).

What's incredible is that 18 months ago, Mr Hull put seven stickle back fry into the pond - how successfully they have reproduced! Let us know if you want any fry for your pond.

Most classes started the week with Crazy Crow - a high octane game requiring Collaboration, Organisation and Communication. There were some incredibly competitive battles here which were awesome fun to watch.

In the wood, we found a letter from Flame...the munchkins loved our places of worship and have clans visiting next week for communal worship - the munchkin lady folk asked the children to make play areas to keep the visiting munchlings entertained.

DT skills were needed here and the children made some incredible attractions which I am confident the munchlings will love (much tool-use, Collaboration and Creativity were called for).
