Every Monday afternoon our Nursery and Reception children shall be learning in our wonderful school woods, exploring the woods and learning about the environment.
This week the children learnt about – trees. The children looked how high the trees were and learnt the features of the trees.
The children learnt that the trees body was called it’s trunk and the branches are the trees arms. The children explored how big the trunks were…
The children then learnt about the bark on a tree. The children thought that the trees bark was like the trees skin and the children felt it and described its texture; bumpy, scratchy, hard, smooth.
The children finished the session by making a bark rubbing of the tree.
