Room 3 have been out in the school garden enjoying the lovely weather we have been having lately. They have planted lots of different crops; scallions, carrots, spinach, lettuce and peas. We have learned about how plants need light, soil and water to grow and have been checking in on them everyday to monitor their progress. As you can see in our pictures they are coming along nicely and we can hardly wait until it’s time to harvest them!
