Tree identification

On Friday. our Year 1 children enjoyed a walk to the meadow, looking for signs of spring along the way.  We spotted the snowdrops which are emerging in the graveyard.  We also looked at the buds that are appearing on the trees and used them to help identify which variety of tree they are.  We found oak, cherry, beech and ash trees.  We discussed why the trees had buds and were delighted to think that they were new leaves.
