5th class girls do an Autumn Tree Trail in Bushy Park

On Friday 16th October 2020, we excitedly headed off for a Tree Trail in Bushy Park.  We were all set with our clip boards and Tree Trail packs and looked forward to the task ahead!

Our mission was to find the 15 trees that were outlined in the pack.   The plinths with the information about the trees were dotted all around the park and we had a map to follow.  There was lots of team work involved!  As soon as we arrived we checked our maps for the location of the first tree and were delighted to quickly find it.   There was no stopping us now!  We were able to do leaf, fruit and tree rubbings of each of the trees.   One tree…. No. 12 eluded us!  Maybe you can find it and let us know?

We visited the stunning lake and the waterfall.  We saw squirrels and some girls even caught sight of a rat!!!   There were lots of people exercising and walking their dogs.   Being Autumn, the ground was full of colourful leaves and fruits.

At the end of the trail, it started to rain, but we didn`t mind.   We put up our hoods and played for a while.  At this stage we were tired and hungry and eagerly headed back for a relaxing Friday afternoon!
