Fun Fungi

While Jeni, our caretaker, was carrying out some garden maintenance, she found this amazing basket or cage fungus growing under our ground cover plants.

At first, she thought it was a ball of paper. However, on closer inspection she realised it was actually ‘growing’.

Hana helped by identifying the fungi as she had seen one before. She explained where she had found one and how she used a botanicals book to identify the type of fungi it was.

It looks like it’s made of paper. Zoe

We have found a good variety of fungi growing around our school this year.
