When the ants go marching in to The Hideaway forest school!

We listened to the Aesop's fable of the ant and the grass hopper before trying to move like an ant and grass hopper. As the norm in The Hideaway we went on a bug hunt to find the busy ants and grass hoppers having fun before using our imaginations to make our own ants.

Did you know ants can carry 5,000 times their body weight? It is said if we weigh all the ants in the world they would weigh as much as all the people! Ants have two stomachs, one for storing food for themselves and the other for holding food to be shared with other ants. We also share our food in The Hideaway and enjoyed some frozen water melon, yum!

Will you be like the ant this summer and prepare for next term or like the grasshopper and have fun fun fun all summer long?
