Jupiter enjoys tree-mendous nature walk!

23rd September 2016

This week, Jupiter pupils went on a nature walk around the school woods as part of their forest school activities.

The boys identified ...

  • edible plants (nettles, blackberries)
  • pests and weeds (nettles, thistles, brambles)
  • hazel trees (how they can be coppiced and rerooted into fences)
  • national flowers (thistle, daffodil)
  • dangerous plants (unknown mushrooms, toadstools, fungus)
  • different methods for seeding (acorns being buried by animals, wings on sycamore tree seeds)
  • imported plants (yucca)
  • plants that were being grown deliberately (hawthorn)
  • and great British trees (oak)
