Third class trip to Botanics for Tree Week

Third class visited The Botanic Gardens on Friday to celebrate Tree Week. We had a fantastic tour with a super guide where we found out lots of new information on different trees in the gardens. We were looking at the giant redwood trees, the trees in the rainforest and the oldest trees in the gardens, the yew trees. We looked at the succulents in the cactus house and learned about why different trees have developed different defence mechanisms.
