Wildflowers and butterflies

Mighty Oaks have been looking at evolution and inheritance in science, and took to the outdoors to see how wildflowers have adapted to suit their environment. We identified lots of wildflowers on our field and in our wild area, including teasels, lady’s bedstraw, selfheal and yellow rattle. We also learnt about how some common flowers have evolved defensive measures, including toxins and poisons! As part of our outdoor learning we also took part in a butterfly survey, identifying some common British butterflies and day-flying moths.
