Children from the Butterfly and Caterpillar rooms decided to hunt for mini beasts while they were playing in the nursery garden today. The children lifted up mats and overturned logs to see what they could find. The children then added soil to a tray and placed the mini beasts into the tray to have a closer look at them.

The children asked staff members questions about what type of insects they had found and what they like to eat. Once the children were finished, they released the creatures back into the nursery garden. The children found slugs, snails, wood lice and worms.
