Planting week

This week we are  planting a variety of fruits, vegetables and flowers in our garden.

The children have had great fun in the garden today using our new wheelbarrows spades and rakes. (The rakes and spades were kindly donated by education essentials, one of our parents)

Today we have planted some strawberry plants and some potatoes.

 

The children have dug the earth and raked it smooth ready for more planting this week. We will be learning lots about how food is grown, how we look after it and when we can harvest it. Thank you to everyone who has donated seeds and plants for this week.

 

Research continues to show us how being outdoors is beneficial to our health both as children and on into later life click here for more information.
