Exploring the Edible Garden
KS1pupils had the chance to explore our brand new Edible Garden in a gardening workshop led by Trees for Cities. Each class experienced a specially tailored seed sowing workshop to introduce the space and the gardening activities. Firstly, they sat around the outdoor classroom area and learnt to recognize and identify different gardening tools. The pupils spent a little bit of time exploring the different tools. Then, pupils were able to get the compost and seeds to plant before locating their class group’s gardening bed, which was labelled with a picture of their class animal. Each group then planted their seeds and will be encouraged to look after them as the term progresses.
As well as experiencing the Edible Garden, KS1 have been learning about Sensational Seasons in Creative Curriculum. So far each class has explored the different weather associated with the seasons for spring and summer for example through rainy puddle tuff trays and wearing summer hats and sunglasses.
They will continue to look at the autumn and winter throughout the remainder of this half term.
