KS2 Science: Living things – habitats, predator and prey, food chains, life cycles

Meet some amazing animals from our handling collection up close to find out about hibernation, migration, where they live and how they prepare for winter.
Crunch through the fallen leaves, exploring the beautiful grounds of Wollaton Hall on our special walk as we observe the changing colours and signs of Autumn all around us. Look for bat hibernating boxes and spot the busy squirrels collecting chestnuts to store for the cold months ahead!
Search for prickly fruit cases and tickly seed heads in a special Autumn treasure hunt, learn to identify some trees by their distinctive leaf shapes and collect colourful leaves to use create leaf rubbing patterns in a crafty activity back at the Hall.
