Year 1 SAW Week

First of all the children revisited their science learning about evergreen and deciduous trees. They went outside to explore the trees on the school grounds and made friends with a tree by giving it a big hug! They children created bark and leaf rubbings and used these to create a big year group tree later in the week. We discussed the tallest tree in the world and measured the same distance outside, it took us all the way from Year 1 to the Year 6 classrooms at Juniors! Following our observations of nature the children wrote their own tree poems and presented them in the shape of a leaf. We finished the week by adding these poems to our year group tree which finished our collaborative art project perfectly.
