Trip to Bolam Lake

Bolam Lake D (5)

On Wednesday, We went on a fantastic trip to Bolam Lake in the heart of Northumberland. Throughout the day, we took part in a wide variety of activities and we learned a great deal about different animals, their habitats and about the lake in general.

The activities included:

  • Lake Dipping where we used nets to catch many different creatures who live in the lake. We found pondskaters, water boatmen, water scorpions and so much more.

  • Mini-Beast Safari: Where we able to look through a wide open area at the lake to find as many different mini-beasts and creatures as we could. Robbie made the find of the day when he was able to find a small frog which he released back into a safe area.

  • The Perfect View: We used graphite sticks to sketch our perfect view of the lake from the distance, midpoint and foreground. We used pastels to then add colour to our art work.
