The Green Man at North Bute

Primary 4/5 have been busy working on a science topic of plants. As part of that topic, we went on Thinking Walks, copying the idea from Charles Darwin. He went on these walks regularly to think about his discoveries. We did this too and collected specimens and pressed them to study them more. On one of our walks, we collected leaves that had fallen from the trees and that were beautiful autumn colours.
We pressed these too. When they were pressed and dried, the class made a fantastic representation of the Green Man – obviously not so green but more autumnal! They did this with the help of Jessica Herriot, Scottish Heritage who knows so much about our local plants and trees. We all learned so much and had a great time making our collage.
