Westonbirt Arboretum - Year 2

Year 2 pupils learnt a lot of fascinating facts about trees at the arboretum. They also conducted an experiment to find the best insulation for a badger during winter. Each group made a den for their toy badger which had a container of hot water inside it. The winners were the ones with the hottest water in their badger after leaving them alone for 20 minutes in the den. The pupils then acted out the component parts of a tree and finally each made a boggart out of a blob of clay and whatever else they could find on the forest floor.
