Shirebrook October

We spent the morning finding out the age of trees, to do this we had to measure 1m up the tree and then around the girth of the tree. This measurement was then divided by 2.5 to arrive at a rough estimate of the age of the tree.
At home, we carried on with the maths, working out trees ages and also giving the girls an age of a tree and then getting them to work out the girth. Imogen wants to find a tree that is 100 years old.
That morning we also measured leaves using squared paper.
The afternoon was spent making insect homes and climbing trees!
