Year 1 went outside this week as part of their Science topic. It was a very windy day but we had lots of fun and we were very busy! We were looking at all the different varieties of trees that we could see. We did some bark rubbings using chalk. We also tried to work out how tall a tree was by seeing if we could see the top of the tree when we looked between our legs and then we counted the number of paces we had to walk back to the base of the tree. We also measured the circumference of the trunk of the tree with wool. We found out that the circumference of the trunk was just over a metre.
