As well as counting the dragonfly’s wings and legs and discussing what colour it was, the children also learned more about where dragonflies live and what they like to eat and drink.

Emma Auston, nursery manager, said: “We don’t see a lot of dragonflies in the garden so it was very exciting for the children when they spotted this one.

“It sat very still for a while so they got to have a good look at it, and even gave it a drink of water as it was a hot day.
