Ecology of the Playing Field

As part of our science unit “Environment, Ecology and Evolution,” Class 3 went on an ecological study of the playing field. We found many different species of plant and which areas of the field they grow.

Along with the plants we found some interesting fungi and lichens.

We also looked at what creatures live in the field, we found all sorts of insects including woodlice, flies, ants and ladybirds. We also found several arachnids, some birds and evidence of visiting mammals.
