The fun and learning opportunities when you go searching for a Christmas tree are endless.
The children first had to think about where the tree would go and measure the space…. “with what?” Remembering the big number was tricky but it was the same height as Jane’s shoulders. Saws are sharp and dangerous but not our folding saw! Which tree to choose? Children learnt a new word “evergreen” and discovered some had “needles” not leaves. We even made up a new song!
Of course, when we returned, the tree was hung upside down the old traditional way!
