Junior Alleynian 2023

n The addition of Forest School to our curriculum continues to be a huge success. Under the expert guidance of Mrs Greenaway, the boys in Year 3 have particularly benefitted from these sessions. Some of their learning highlights include: • Finding out a clever way to calculate the age of a tree, and also its height (without having to climb it)!! • Taking bark and leaf rubbings from a variety of trees • Viewing plants using a UV torch and discovering how bees pollinate flowers, and then learning about the wonderful waggle dance acted out by these magical creatures • Dissecting tulips – finding the stamen (anther and filament) and pistil (stigma, style and ovary)
