On Monday Year 2 measured the circumference of trees, found 2D shapes in nature and created patterns and sequences using foliage when they visited Kew Gardens.
It was a bit chilly, so everyone warmed themselves up by measuring the circumference of trees using a tape measure, their footsteps and even with hugs! The pupils found 2D shapes in nature and created patterns and sequences using cones and leaves. After a break for lunch (which was spent in a teepee), pupils visited the Hive and heard the vibrations of the bees, looked ( but didn’t touch!) the very spiky cacti in the Princess Diana Conservatory, and burned off any excess energy in the Children’s Garden before heading home.
Despite some patchy weather, the pupils had a wonderful time and enjoyed exploring maths firsthand in the great outdoors.
