Holly Nature Study

IMG_0077.jpg

This morning we were reading The Christmas Book by Enid Blyton, a beautiful, living book,  that details the customs and traditions of Christmas, tells the story of the birth of Christ, and tucks in a wee bit of nature study too.

We read the chapter about Holly, and picked some from our garden to study.

Rose cut up some of the berries to see what was inside, and we sketched the holly in our journals whilst listening to Bing Crosby singing ‘The Holly and the Ivy’

Rose wrote a short dictation from the story we had read.

I copied out part of the story that had most interested me.

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

Happy exploring
