Rooksbury Mill pond dipping

Year 1 have had a lovely time visiting the lake at Rooksbury Mill to carry out a Wildlife Discovery Programme with leaders from the Test Valley Borough Council.  Both Grasshoppers and Bumblebees carried out pond dipping from the lake using nets and then inspected the invertibrates  to identify them.  They were able to view them even more closely with a microscope.  A wide variety of creatures were found and the children learned a lot about them.
