The London Drinks Company came to St Margaret’s to give the children a talk about tree sapping and how it is done.
Year 3, took part the children learnt about how to extract to sap from the Silver Birch tree and taste it!! Believe it or not the sap tasted really nice.
The children also striped some bark from the tree and made pictures from it.
Alphas said :
We learnt how to take juice from a tree.
We made a small size hole with a drill.
We put two small sticks in to the hole and let the sap just run out.
finally, we put a jug under until it was full.
We had a great time and learnt a lot.
