I had the most wonderful day with the delightful Year 4’s and 5’s from Cropthorne-with-Charlton CE First School. The first half of the morning was spent looking at Rainforests. The children thought about the height of the four different parts to the canopy in a Rainforest. We measured the very large ‘log’ outside the visitor room and calculated that it was well over 100 years old when it was cut down. We then took a walk on the farm to see the coppiced willow, estimated how tall the oak tree is and saw a real live example of plant succession in the nature area by the pond. After snack time the children completed a team activity based on Charlotte’s web.
