Reception's Green Fingers!

The Reception children have busy this year looking after their three flower beds. Over the course of the year we have been weeding, planting, watering, weeding, harvesting and doing a ittle bit more weeding. The flower beds are looking particularly green right now with herbs, beans, tomatoes, sunflowers and of course apples! The children have really enjoyed caring for the plants and have been very observant noticing changes on a regular basis.

Today we re-planted our sunflowers that we planted in teams during the first half of the summer term - you may remember from our sharing assembly! They are looking strong and healthy and need a lot of water. "Wow, look at all these roots" said Thomas as we took the sunflower out of its pot. The beans we also planted whilst reading Jack and the Beanstalk have grown well past our castles in the cloud and Miss Richardson's bean frame is nearly invisible! The beans have flowered and we are starting to see some beans hiding in between the leaves.

"Look at the beans, they are hiding in the leaves" Ethan 
"It's not called mud, it's called soil" Augustas 
"Can we eat the apples?" Ella
