The Horse Chestnut Tree

Ms O’ Halloran’s class has been observing the Horse Chestnut Tree in the staff car park, all year. It has begun to change recently and here is their report and photos.

“Our  Horse Chestnut Tree started off with just some sticky buds in February but in March they began to open. Now in April they have opened fully. There are some candle shaped flowers with the leaves. In Autumn these will turn into horse chestnuts with conkers inside.”
