After having a trees 'Top Trumps' booklet kicking around the house for a year, we decided to finally make use of it and have a project on trees.
We started the week by reading about trees in the encyclopedia and the junior science dictionary, before going on a nature walk to count tree rings and discover how old the trees were. We read about photosynthesis and why leaves change colour in the Autumn. We also went to visit the trees we had planted earlier in the year at the local tiny forest.
We also had a big cycle out to the local country park to explore their tree trail.
Finally, the children did some finger-painting of trees.
Next project: Memory
