Investigating Trees

This week in Forest School, Year 5HC took inspiration from our trip to Westport Lake and went in search of  different trees in our school grounds.

Using a leaf dial, they were able to identify and name each tree by firstly correctly identifying the leaf.

After that, the children used a piece of string and metre stick to accurately measure the girth of each tree truck. Each group had a chart which enabled them to estimate the age of each tree based on this measurement and the type of tree.
