YR Allotment Visit

Tuesday 20TH October

Reception have been learning about fruit and vegetables linked to Harvest. On Tuesday, the children went to visit Mrs Wilmott's allotment to see how vegetables and fruits grow. Mrs Willmott dug up a few different vegetables and showed the children the roots and how they had grown. The children were fascinated with how different fruits and vegetables grow. They learnt a lot about whether they grow above or under the ground or whether they grow on vines. We had a great time. Thank you Mrs Willmott.

This initiative links in with their work on ‘Ourselves and Families’ as they have been learning about taking care of others and looking after themselves. There was a good turn-out of parents and they all enjoyed a drink with biscuits that the children had made themselves.
