This week the children have started looking at the story of Percy The Park Keeper – After The Storm. The children read the beginning of the story where a tree fell down in a storm.
Today in our school woods the children explored the features of trees and learnt about the different parts of the trees.
The children all found that the trees in our woods are very very tall! They have branches way up high with leaves on. The children thought that the branches on the trees were like our arms and the leaves the trees hands.
The children then thought about the trees body – the trunk. Some trees have big trunks and some have small trunks. The children described how the trunk felt.
We then had a look if we could see the trees roots under all the autumn leaves.
We then went to see if any trees in our woods had fallen down like our Percy the Park Keeper story.
