Our class assembly will be on Friday 12th July at 9.10 am in the Infant hall.
We are lucky to have a Nature Garden and we will be visiting it regularly to look at how the natural world changes through the seasons. On our first visit we found leaves beginning to change colour and lots of acorns.
This is an Ash tree. Its seeds are called Ash Keys.
The trees are looking bare now. This oak tree still has a few leaves left.
The leaves have gone and the weather was wet and cold on our December visit.
The day was grey and cold but dry when we visited the garden in January. You can still see the Ash Keys on the tree.
Unfortunately the February photos have been accidently deleted.
It was lovely to see evidence of Spring arriving in March.
The trees and bushes have leaves and blossom in April.
Plants are beginning to flower in the garden and the sun was shining in May.
After we watched the video, we went outside to find evidence. We found scratches, footprints, other marks and plants that had been eaten.
