We learned all about the hedgerow. We went out and found hawthorn, blackthorn, holly, dog rose and other trees in the hedge at school.
We found nettles, dandelions, robin run the hedge, thistles and lots of plants too.
We made a little hedgerow in our classroom. It even had a baby horse chestnut tree. We watched lots of different buds as they opened and noticed that there were simple leaves on trees like the cherry blossom and compound leaves on trees like the horse chestnut.
It was fun learning about the birds and the mini-beasts too. We had a wormery - we filled it with layers of soil and sand, and then put in worms from our own gardens. We were able to see where the worms burrowed through the soil.
We saw slugs, snails, centipedes, millipedes and woodlice out in the garden.
We are like Junior Scientists.
