Y1 and Y2 Visit Gorse Hill Nature Reserve

On Friday Y1 and Y2 went on a trip to Gorse Hill Nature Reserve as part of their studies on the geography of the local area and their topic on Plants and Animals.  The children were given a tour of the Hill with various vantage points of Liverpool, Southport, Blackpool  and Ormskirk to help them develop a senses of place and land use.  In the nature reserve children took part in a workshops on animals which included pond dipping , looking at bird nests and classifying activities.  There was also time for a short worship session at the top of  Gorse Hill, with the wind rustling the grass, the birds singing and the sun on our faces it  was a truly spiritual experience for children and staff alike.  The children as always were exceptionally well behaved and a credit to the school.
