Tree Trail

The children have been working with Cllr Adam Powell to create a Tree Trail around the village.  In February, they walked the trail and learnt about 10 trees around the village.  They followed a map to get to each tree and found out from Adam, all about the leaves, stems, buds and bark of each tree.  On returning to school, the children drew a huge scale map of the village and placed the samples that they had collected in the correct place on the map.  
In the afternoon, the children used their well-honed skills of sketching and water-colour painting to create scientific pictures of each of the 10 trees - labelling different features of each tree.  The children are now working on creating a brochure containing information about each of the 10 trees with pictures and artwork.  This will be printed and used for visitors to Broadhembury to follow the Tree Trail.
