Following on from measuring the trees we have in the school playground and finding out that these trees are approximately 10 – 12 years old, some of our Young Tree Champions used the Tree Guide UK app to find out a bit more about trees elsewhere on the school site. The children examined the leaves, buds and bark in order to discern the species of tree in the areas outside different classrooms.
Using the app, the children identified the following trees: Horse Chestnut, Black poplar, Wild Cherry and Douglas Fir.
