Delaunay children explored the micro-habitats around our school including the organic compost area to see what minibeasts they could find.

The young explorers were lucky enough to find worms, woodlice, centipedes and many more weird and fascinating creatures lurking in dark, damp places. We have been learning about the connections between these creatures, how they depend on each other and why they can usually be found in the same place.

We even found evidence of a simple foodchain and shared ideas about who was eating who:
