Neighbourhood Walk

Last Wednesday we went for a walk around our neighbourhood to see lots of plants in our local area. We have been learning about what living things need to grow and survive. We ended our walk at the park and noticed big mounds of mulch under the trees. Mulch helps trees to grow and be healthy. 

On the way we looked for treasure - lots of leaves, sticks, gum nuts, bark, seed pods, flowers, snail shells and more to make a collage. We were careful not to pick anything off a plant or tree. We looked for things that had already fallen off. 

Thanks to all our mums who came on our walk!  We loved having a play in the park and we got home just before the rain! A perfect afternoon.

Here are some of the things we discovered:

I noticed that plants grow with rain. Chantelle

Plants need soil to grow. Simon

Plants always like water to grow. James

I learnt that leaves change colour when it's Autumn. Caitlin

I know that plants need water and sun to grow. Olivia

I learnt that flowers do not have to be the same colour. Frances

James taught me that trees that lose their leaves are called deciduous. Gracie

I learnt that leaves change their colour before they fall off. Niamh

Trees that don't lose their leaves are called evergreen. Alexa



  1. Dear Preps,
    Your magnificent photos of nature reminded me that God created our beautiful world and asked us to care for everything very carefully!
