25th – 29th April Stramash Outdoor Nursery

Stramash Outdoor Nursery, Elgin Blog

The boys and girls are increasingly confident in spotting signs of Spring and have noticed many different leaf buds as well as new green leaves and needles emerging on trees. Some spotted new growth on a fallen tree and were quick to suggest that some of the roots must still be in the ground and transporting water up the trunk to allow this!! They also spent time with Mrs Ade trying to figure out how old trees are without having to cut them down and count growth rings! The children had a go at using measuring tapes to work out the circumference of the trunks. Some of the boys and girls decided to look at the girth of two trees to compare and predict which one was older and which one was younger.
