Our classroom faces onto our lovely school garden and this year we have a garden box. Unfortunately, I am not remotely green-fingered and every plant in my posession meets a sad demise1 If any parent or grandparent would be interested in doing some weeding and planting with small groups of children over the next few months I would be very grateful. It is an excellent opportunity for the children to learn about growing and life processes and will fit in very well to our theme of Spring in March.
We have a small budget for purchasing bulbs and vegetables and I am very open to suggestions as to what we should plant - again I am clueless!
If you are interested and can spare some time (it need only be a half hour every so often) leave a comment below or talk to me next week.
Thank you in advance
This week we were learning all about the number 3. We worked hard at making sets of 3 and representing our work on whiteboards
Our themes this month are Space and Dinosaurs. Today we had a hunt for dinosaur bones, some treasure stealing in the moon village and our spaceship nearly crashed into Mars because the astronaut baby was pulling at the wires!
It's been a busy week - we changed our play areas, made St Brigid's crosses, did dancing in the hall, we went on a number hunt and we are learning to make 3-step patterns. There were lots of creative ideas at the junk art table and we have been exploring Space in the role-play area and the small world area,
