How does your garden grow?

One of the courgette plants we bought at the plant sale is growing well in our garden. Yesterday we enjoyed looking at the beautiful yellow and orange flower but this morning it is closed. Do you know why the flower closed over night?

Farming Friday – sun dial

We made our own sun dials as it was beautiful and sunny this morning. However, by the time we had made them the sun was covered by clouds! We now know you can’t see the shadows caused by the sun when it is cloudy!

Farming Friday – observational drawing

Our strawberries are starting to grow in the garden. We need to make some signs for them so we are practising how to draw strawberries. We learned how to shade, how to look for where the light is hitting and how to draw what we could see, rather than what we think a strawberry looks like.

Gardening

We have noticed new fruit growing on the strawberry plant. We know they’re not ready to eat as they’re still green and hard. The beans and potatoes have also really started growing.

Plant sale #2

After the success of the first plant sale we have decided to open it back up for one day only and we would like to invite our parents. It will be open after school on Tuesday. Please bring your change along.

Farming Friday – Cook

We decided to use the cress we have been growing to make egg and cress sandwiches. We all helped out with different jobs. We have been learning to follow and write instructions so we followed instructions to make the sandwiches.
