Fungi are fun 'guys'

September 20, 2017

There's been an explosion of mushrooms on the Home Park and the children with Swapnal, one of our volunteers, have been using our Montessori material to learn more about them, dissecting them to see the different parts (with gloves on) and identifying them against the charts we have in class. They have found 'mushroom motorways' on the Park and enjoy following their trails in the grass.  The Park Rangers have been helping us see the differences between sweet and horse chestnuts and this has led to even more dissection and comparison.  Observation and comparison is such a lovely skill to acquire and so useful for creating art and developing vocabularly.
