Our new garden has supported lots of sustained learning this week.
Children helped to fill the bird feeders on Monday morning: this resulted in us attracting some new friends. Birds visited and the usual squirrels and then a cheeky mouse appeared to help itself to some food. The children were very interested to observe our new friend!
Then two amphibians arrived (we are not sure whether they are frogs or toads so if you know, do help us!)
Meanwhile the children were supported to harvest some potatoes and apples.
Children helped to pick the apples and dig out the potatoes, having much fun using the wheelbarrow. Then some children estimated the amount they had harvested. Next they counted and tallied them.
Next week we plan to enjoy the harvest: maybe with some baked potatoes around the open fire.
