Several schools have now been out to meet the OneOak and all have had a fantastic time. We have been very lucky with the weather, even this week when it was supposed be pretty wet. Everybody has had a lovely time walking out to the tree and trying to find conkers on the way. Once they have reached the tree the children have all had a chance to use their senses, become scientists and discover the wildlife and nature around the tree. Then of course they have had time to explore around the tree after their outdoor picnic. So far Bladon, Willowcroft and Wood Farm Primary Schools have all been out and I am really looking forward to meeting Woodstock and Stonesfield schools over the next few weeks to have some more fun.
Here are some comments from the children who came to visit from Wood Farm yesterday:
“I really enjoyed the oak tree when I look up to the top it makes me very dizzy. The favourite activity was where you have to look under your legs.’’ – Courtney
“I really enjoyed seeing the oak tree. My favourite activity was getting insects. I will never forget the oak tree.’’- Douglas
“My favourite activity was measuring the tree. I will never forget the walk’’- Saiful
“I really enjoyed the measuring. My favourite activity was exploring the trees! I will never forget when we were saying goodbye.’’- Nimrah
