On Tuesday, George held the attention of his entire class with a fabulous presentation about mushrooms he had sourced in Alexandra Palace. Not only had George conducted independent research and taken photographs of locally sourced mushrooms (both edible and inedible) but he also had real life examples for the children to look at. A word of caution though, George advised against eating mushrooms found in the park, as some are actually POISONOUS. His family’s mantra is: ‘If in doubt, throw it out!’ George has inspired other children to conduct research into areas they are passionate about too!
