National Tree Week

This week in Mini Explorers, we have been celebrating National Tree Week. This is the UK’s largest annual tree celebration when lots of volunteers around the country are dedicating their time to the environment by planting new trees, preserving old ones and so much more.

So, Mrs Mitzman and Mrs Rogerson thought this would be a great time to explore the trees in our very own Mini Forest here at Merry Hill.  We have been learning about the parts of a tree and have used nature itself to create some creative diagrams.

We held the paper over the trees and used the texture to colour in our tree trunks. Then we got our hands dirty and did some mud painting for the leaves! Overall, we had a great time getting a little dirty and learning something new.
