Year One’s Signs of Summer

Year One have finished off their science learning with a search for signs of summer in the school woods! They’ve found rabbit holes, new flowers, berries, beech nuts and lots of greenery! We talked about how different it looked during the other seasons and compared our class photo. Super observing and discovering Year One!
