Walking around our school, we found this fascinating tree. Have you noticed how its trunks “hug” themselves?

Its scientific name is Celtis Australis L.. It’s a mediterranean tree that can live for almost 400-500 years and it has 20-25m height.

In the past, this tree was used to build weagons and gun-stocks. Due to the flexibility and endurance of its wood, it is still used for basketwork.

What about you, have you got any special tree in your school?

A green recess We would like to thank all the students who have been exchanging information here. Let us keep in touch! It is great to learn about each other.

Our school has a very large population and it is surrounded by green recesses where we can sit and chat for a while. As Spring is about to arrive, it is possible for us to attend joyous concerts where different bird species greet us. We are preparing some project works to let you know about trees in Portugal. How about  trees in  Spain and in Poland?

Please, do keep in touch with us! :0)
