We spent a very enjoyable afternoon with Year 6 pupils from St Bernadette’s RC Primary visiting Heybarnes recreation ground, which lies almost next door to their school. Only the River Cole comes between them and this very diverse open urban space.
The object of our summer forays is to spend more time with schools, talking about trees in general as a follow up to plantings we have done with their schools in local parks. When we plant our trees most of the saplings have no leaves, so the chance to see them showing leaves and in some case fruit offers the opportunity to begin learning the names of different species and how they spread their seeds.
Today we had all 3 classes from Year 6 so there are further photos that are available via this link
