We started the term as botanists exploring the Forest School Area. We made dens, searched for wildlife, burrowed into the ground to explore how roots spread, we created natural art and sketched trees using pastels. This was a fabulous start to our English lessons where we are learning about the text ‘The magic and Mystery of Trees’ so we can write information texts. Our learning in Science will also support our writing because we are studying what plants and trees need to survive. We are really looking forward to our visit to Westonbirt so we can extend our knowledge. In Art we are taking one picture by Van Gogh to create our own interpretation of the Irises.
