Half Term Homework

"Our children are disconnecting with nature. By the time they are 7 years old, they can identify 200 logos ...... but they cannot identify trees growing in their gardens."


Dear Parents,

Thank you so much for the fantastic half term homework on trees.  I was really impressed with the quality of the tree pictures especially the observational drawings of leaves.  I will be adding some of the highlights to the class page.  I hope that the activity has enabled you and your children to get out and about in the woods and learning more about trees.   There will be other activities for homework and as part of Forest School and science that the children will be doing during the year.

Mrs Bassett
