We had a wonderful time exploring the arboretum for our science topic of plants. It was an amazing experience that brought our science curriculum to life. It was a glorious autumnal day with light wind and rain which created a magical experience and some puddle jumping. The children were particularly amazed by the colours of the leaves on the Japanese Maples. During the day, we thought about the parts of trees and their function, how trees grow and how they make their food.
