Worms are very good recyclers!
We have been learning about ‘sustainability’ and the things we can do to look after our world.
On Tuesday 23rd May we had a visit from Kevin and Sam who work at The Worm Shed. Not only did we learn many interesting facts about Red Tiger Worms we also learnt why worms are the best recyclers!
Sam shared some information with us then it was time to have a look a real worms! We enjoyed hunting for the worms and the touch of them wiggling on our skin!
What we have learnt…
Worms have no legs but they can wriggle. Landen
They have five hearts but we have only one. Abby
Worms don’t have eyes. They feel and see by moving their body. Oliver
They breathe through their body and they can’t swim. Jermaine
They have a lump called a saddle on their back. Alexia
They eat things that aren’t growing anymore. Ava
Their saddle is closest to their head. Maxwell
Grown up worms only have a saddle. Trent
They can eat through boxes. Abby
They slurp in the food. Alexia
They don’t like the sun. Kara
Their food has to be mushy. Ava
Their poo doesn’t smell! Laura
Kevin showed us how to make our own mini worm farm that we have now taken home and hopefully have transferred into our gardens!
We had a great time learning about the importance of these little creatures!
Thanks Kevin and Sam!
