Primary 4 Tree Investigation in Botanic Gardens.
We were lucky enough to enjoy a special session with Maureen from Ulster Wildlife. We learned how to measure the girth of a tree and use this to work out how old the tree was. We were very excited when we spotted a squirrel gathering nuts, a ladybird and a frog climbing one of the trees! We investigated different textures and living things we can find on tress such as the bark, tree sap, mushrooms, moss, lichen and leaves! We know how to tell if a sycamore tree is healthy by looking at the tar spots on the leaves and we had a great time flying 'helicopters' in a competition. What a fun afternoon, check out some photos below!
P4 worked hard to present our harvest assembly. We learnt a song, some of us wrote our own poems to read to the school, some of explained the customs we have at harvest. We enjoyed painting the fruit that we have collected. Some children in the school brought in non perishable food that was sent to a food bank.
All of our photos are included in a power point to accompany the song Cauliflowers fluffy
