Last Friday we took a small group of year 1 children up to the garden to clear the old cabbages and plant some courgettes that had been donated to the school. The children love to get out into the open, breathe in the fresh air and get their hands dirty. We sprinkled on some organic chicken manure first which they all found rather funny - being aged 5/6!! and then popped in the plants. Finally we gave them a good water and then returned to class.
Then the fox made her(?) daily trek across the garden. She is getting more and more tame as time goes by. Soon she'll be sitting in on story time in the willow classroom!!
