What microhabitats are there at Bramber?

We learned that parts of the environment at Bramber are a woodland habitat and some are more of an urban/ garden habitat. We wanted to find out about microhabitats. Our trip to Pulborough Brooks helped us to explore the vocabulary and we learned that microhabitat means a smaller habitat which is part of a main habitat. Some of us thought that a microhabitat could only be where an insect live until Mrs Holmes showed us the birds nests in the trees and reminded us about the ponds at Pulborough Brooks too. 


We spent time outside taking photos of the microhabitats we could find. We also happened to find a bright green caterpillar which caught our attention for a while! 


We recorded our findings by printing off some of the photos and writing about what we found. Well done, Year 2! Super scientists!
