We went on a nature walk in our local G.A.A. field and learned lots about different flowers, trees and plants. We saw the leaves and fruit of lots of plants e.g. blackthorn bush – sloe berry, white thorn bush – haw berry, spindle tree – spindle berry, blackberry bush – blackberries and lots more. We saw both forms of the dandelion – seed (white) and flower (yellow) and learned about how one changes into the other over time. We saw some wild mushrooms and made sure not to touch them. We learned how to recognise different plants and the different parts of the plants and trees. We collected some leaves and fruit that had fallen from the trees/ plants for our nature table.
