The Year 1 Tree Challenge

Monday 22nd September | 22 comments

Today we went for a walk round the school grounds. We saw lots of different trees and each learning hive adopted a tree – an alder tree, wild cherry, apple tree and silver birch. Over the year we will watch how they grow and change.

We collected lots of leaves on our walk and now we have a challenge for you. Can you name the trees by looking at their leaves?

    This is very tricky. I think I will get some of them right, but I am looking forward to learning from all my mistakes!

    1. Is it a wild cherry leaf? It might be a bit too narrow.
    2. Not sure…. is it an ash leaf?
    3. I think that is silver birch.
    4. Hawthorn perhaps?
    5. I really don’t know…
    6. Hazel
    7. Easy… that’s an oak leaf – I can tell by the lobed edge like ear lobes.
    8. I guess that is willow.
    9. I think that is alder – great for growing on very wet fields
    10. I really don’t know. Is it an apple leaf?
    11. Is that a rowan, otherwise known as mountain ash?
    12. Is that some sort of maple tree? It is quite a fancy one!

    I don’t mind getting some of them wrong – that’s the best way to learn!

      A good attempt Mr Harris. If you want to have a closer inspection of tree number 5 it is in the infant playground. I wonder if Year 3 can improve on your fabulous score.
