18 May Y1 Science Observations: Bark Rubbing
In Year 1, we have been learning about plants in Science, including the different parts of a plant. This week, we’ve been learning about trees so we went outside to take some bark rubbings. The children were fascinated to see the textures of different bark, describing them as ‘bumpy’, ‘rough’ and ‘flaky’. We also discussed the function of the tree’s trunk and compared this to the stem of a flower.
