Once we were there, we met Jessica who works for Lewisham Council. She came to teach us all about trees. We had an amazing time with her and learnt about the different parts of a tree and the trees that are native to the United Kingdom. We saw lots of beautiful autumn leaves and animals. We finished our session by doing our own bark rubbings. We feel it is really important to use our locality to learn in.
Thank you to the helpers who came along with us. We had a great time!
