Gardening in the foundation stage

 

Gardening in the foundation stage

 

Everyday the children have the opportunity to work with Mrs Thompson in our gardening area.

We will be helping Mrs Thompson clear the planters and grow our own flowers and some ingredients for our upcoming cooking lessons! All children will be expected to get their fingers green and will learn all about soil, the parts of a plant and the process of growing a seed to a crop.

 

 

Planting potatoes

 

We planted potato tubes in grow bags. We measured the soil to 15cm deep. Then we counted 3 potatoes into each bag. We watered the bags and put them into the greenhouse.

 

Feeding the birds

 

As the weather is cold and wintery we are putting meal worms and fat balls onto the bird feeders for the birds to eat.

We went to check the beds and the vegetables in the greenhouse. We also filled the bird table with meal worms to encourage the local wildlife.

We have planted runner bean seeds. We looked at the seeds closely and found out that they are purple and black in colour.
