Today the Year 2 children were set a challenge. They were asked to find out which type of tree is there most of in Pontlliw park. We began by looking at leaf classification charts. We then discussed they ways in which they could gather their data. Then we went down to the park where the children worked brilliantly, discussing and comparing trees and gathering data carefully. Lots of the children wanted to know why leaves change colour in Autumn, so when we returned to school we discussed their findings before reading ‘Why Do Leaves Change Colour’ by Betsy Maestro. The children were fascinated, and are now keen to collect lots of leaves and tree seeds to bring to school for our investigation area. Tomorrow we will use Hwb to show our data in charts and tables. Ardderchog, Blwyddyn 2!
