Planting for the spring
Whilst I try and educate the children about healthy lifestyles and healthy eating there is no better way to do it than hands on growing our own foods.
This year we have planted some potatoes, beans, tomatoes and strawberries, looking at the pictures of the fruit and vegetables as we planted them. Through doing so we have talked about caring for plants as well as discussing the life cycle of plants.
The children had great fun planting and come out almost daily to check the progress of their plants. We are currently seeing some flowers on our strawberries! They absolutely love watering the plants and are frequently asking to go and do this!
