Year 1 Garden Centre Trip
To give our Year 1 children a hands-on experience related to their topic ‘Plants’, they were taken on a walk to a nearby plant centre, called ‘Lotus Garden’. The children were put to work to help weed, plant and water flowers. They had the opportunity to sniff, touch and look at all the beautiful plants and flowers. Gardeners took great care in explaining to the children what the various plants and flowers were.
A big thank you to all the staff there that made us feel so welcome.
Year 2 Farm Trip
Not to be outdone, the Year 2 children had the fantastic opportunity of visiting the farm at Remsoon Gardens. The farm, famous for its wide variety of home-grown vegetables and flowers, as well as it small holding of animals such as peacocks and goats, is a regular destination for our Year 2 students and always receives the same enjoyment and fascination as the students see where the vegetables they see in the supermarket are really grown. Our children had a great time, and judging by the armfuls of vegetables they brought back with them, they learned a lot about how food grows. Many thanks, as always, to Reem for allowing our students to experience this opportunity.
Here are some photos from the day.
Congratulations to all our ‘Super Stars’ this week!
