Foundation’s Gardening Day!

Comments Off on Foundation’s Gardening Day! 173

Wow!  What a gorgeous day it was to start our topic ‘Growing Up’. We had the BEST gardening day weather, the children (and the staff!) had so much fun out on Pearlsland!

We spent most of the day, making sure the land was dug up, weeds taken out and new fresh compost put on top. Mr Clark commented that he had never seen children so young so competent at doing such a task. We plan to plant the seeds tomorrow in the morning now all the hard work is done!

The children did many other activities, such as perfume making, den building, making fairy houses, and creating our own flower/leaf colour strip. They also had so much fun generally getting mucky with the water and soil and finding all sorts of mini beasts hiding in there.  A wonderful day with great enthusiastic and engaged children. Well done Foundation!
