Clay tiles

I love this time of year – the leaves on the trees are now out and they look so green. Today the Pre Prep pupils learnt about why trees have leaves and what the leaves do. They were introduced to some technical words like: photosynthesis. Of course I don’t expect them to remember them all, but when they cover plants in Year 3 & 5, they will have heard the words used before. The fun bit was collecting some leaves and embossing them onto a piece of clay they had rolled out. There were some really good designs and hopefully they will have got the message that leaves are not there just to make the tree look pretty!
