As part of the Big Grow programmer we have also had the chance to plant spinach, cress and pea seeds! We are learning about how to care for and help plants to grow and observing the life cycle of a plant as our own ones grow!
This week we worked together to plant all of our seeds from Incredible Edibles! We now have such a variety of lovely fruits and vegetables growing in our garden. We sowed strawberries, potatoes, chives, lettuce, spinach and turnips. We will be busy caring for them over the coming weeks and can’t wait to watch them grow!
We had great fun searching for signs of spring this morning around our beautiful school grounds. We had a checklist to complete with our partner. We found insects in the bug hotels and a frog splashed in the frog pond. We saw daffodils, crocuses, catkins and snowdrops. We saw birds returning from warmer countries and we even spotted a nest in a large tree. We were lucky to see a squirrel from our classroom window yesterday that must have awoken from hibernation.
Today we loved experimenting with clay. We used our imaginations to make our own unique clay creations and used clay tools to add details and decorations! Next week we will paint them to add the finishing touches!
Our annual Art Exhibition takes place today. The wonderful pieces of art that we created in class will be exhibited in the hall. Our parents have been invited to the school to view our magnificent works of art.
