On our way back to Pre School from visiting the Post Office and the Mobile Library on Tuesday we saw a pear tree with lots and lots of fruit. We rang the owner to see if we could pick some pears as the house has no residents at present. The answer was ‘Yes’. So today we set off with our wheelbarrows and plastic bags to try our hand at picking fruit. The children really enjoyed the experience. Now we know that pears grow on trees. To ripen pears we put them between two towels and leave them for a few day. Happy eating families.
(Please note: I am not sure why my photos are turning side ways – if someone knows how to fix this I would be most grateful!)
