Last week, we visited the Westonbirt Arboretum. In running with our Dendrology topic of the year, the children explored the Arboretum whilst partaking in various outdoor activities! The children thoroughly enjoyed creating leaf marking art with Autumnal colour crayons, which fed as a lovely link to our Term 1 Science topic of The Four Seasons. After this, they produced exquisite pieces of art through observing the wide selection of trees as inspiration.

As our chosen text for Term 1 was The Gruffalo, we were all pleasantly surprised to find him within the forest – which led to plenty of the children saying “he is not so terrifying after all!”

We look forward to using what we have learnt and experienced on this trip to Westonbirt Arboretum later on this academic year – to further our love and understanding of Dendrology!
