CHILDREN at King’s Ely Acremont Nursery made the most of the beautiful autumn sunshine on September 20th by heading down to the school’s conservation area and wildlife pond.

The children have been learning lots about life cycles, specifically those of frogs and butterflies, so a spot of pond dipping (all fully supervised of course!) was the perfect way for the inquisitive youngsters to see some tadpoles, froglets and fully grown frogs up close.

The wildlife pond and conservation area was opened in the spring and was lovingly created by the school’s Grounds and Gardens Team. It is proving a fantastic way for the children to reap the benefits of practical, outdoor learning in a safe and secure environment.
