It's October and our wildlife area is looking fantastic. The trees are really beautiful with Autumn hues of gold, red, brown and orange.
The wildlife area at Frogmary Green Farm is so varied with its ponds, meadows, hedgerows and trees. This month I have been busy making and placing animal signs that we can use as destinations for trails and exploration games.
In addition to this fox sign we also have a Butterfly, Hedgehog, Owl and Rabbit all in different colours.
On our last school visit we discovered this strange caterpillar which I haven't been able to identify. It was found walking on the ground in an area where we have a lot of evergreen trees. If you know what it is, please send me an email at
This month we have harvested, beans, squashes, potatoes and lettuces from our school garden. The purple sprouting broccoli plants that we planted back in September are now almost 2 feet high and doing well. Sadly our sweetcorn never reached the table. I kept finding the stalks broken and the corn cobs chewed. After some detective work it appears that badgers have been making a midnight snack of it.
