Trees, worms and iPhoto


Today we planted trees! We have an orchard as part of our school grounds and this afternoon we added some holly, dog rose and hawthorn trees to form hedging around the orchard. 41 children, 4 teachers and a handful of parents braved the Arctic winds to get them planted. On our return to the lovely warm classroom I demonstrated to the children, using the whiteboard of course, how to transfer the photographs I had taken into iPhoto. We then had a go at cropping some of the photographs- so much easier to demonstrate to all on the big screen. Favourite snap was of a wiggly worm. Tomorrow they are going to take photos of the shells we have collected, crop, label and print them out for display.
