We started learning about trees this week, each child chose a tree and marked it as their own. Teacher Yvonne gave us green files to record weekly changes in our tree and record observations about our tree. We went out in groups and collected leaves, measured them and recorded their size and area in our green files. The other groups did maths with Teacher Julie and Peter Smailes. After that the teachers continued teaching us about the trees in our environment. They did a wonderful thing by teaching children about the trees and what they breathe in and out.
