A few weeks ago the Year 3s went on a Science excursion to Barrett Street Forest Reserve. As part of our Be a Bush Scientist work, students learnt from Tracey Muir just how to recognise and identify local trees and plants, both on our school oval and in the bush. We drew and collected bark, leaves and gum nuts of Blue Gums, Karris, Marris and Peppy Trees.
Thank you to all our very patient and helpful parents who came along on the excursion. Your help is much appreciated. 🙂
Enjoy this slideshow of the trip. [Students may want to help put some captions into this….?]

Now we are looking forward to our excursion tomorrow where we will be digging pit traps to see how healthy our bush is and learn about biodiversity. Wow – can’t wait to get our hands dirty!
