Maple Class get on their Bikes!

April 28th, 2015

On Tuesday 28th April, Maple Class were lucky enough to take part in Parklands’ first ever Bike Safari. The ride was led by Community Wildlife Officer Sarah Hughes, who wowed us all with her amazing knowledge of local wildlife and plantlife.

We rode along the Centurion Way, stopping to find out what was living in the hedgerows, eventually arriving at Brandy Hole Copse for a spot of pond dipping. Sarah showed us skulls of a badger and a buzzard, as well as dragon flies, owl pellets and even a snake’s skin! It was great to be reminded just how much incredible wildlife we have on our doorstep in West Sussex and that we all need to be very careful to protect it.

Maple Class behaved beautifully and we had a lovely afternoon, so thank you to Sarah and Phil, to Miss Flower for organising the day and to all the other adults who accompanied us on the ride!
