Over the next couple of weeks the children are learning about trees. How they grow, why they are important and their structure. I am linking their learning to the learning they are doing in class around kindness.
We looked at a tree outside and identified branches, the trunk and roots; we also talked about how trees get their water, why they lose their leaves and the connection with less day light.
The children listened to a story called The giving tree by Shel Silverstein.
Next week they are going make their own  'giving tree' display using branches, and make things to hang onto the tree, so they can give 'something back' to their tree .
We then went to Kingscroft to find some branches we could use for our display, we also looked at the different types in trees in the croft.
