This term Year 3 children have been incredibly busy outdoors. Pupils have harvested the summer fruit and vegetables. With such a large amount of green tomatoes the children enlisted the help of Harrisons chef Dan, as he helped them safely chop up and cook. The children enjoyed tasting their home made chutney, with plenty left over for the teachers to enjoy.
Next the children weeded the beds and filled up the new composting bins. Children helped tidy the newly installed shed and get ready for winter crop planting. Carefully using the gardening tools they planted onions, cabbages, beetroot and other winter vegetables. Fingers crossed there’s enough for a vegetarian Christmas dinner.
Lastly the children have made birdfeeders for the local wildlife. Throughout the year pupils will regularly feed and observe the bird population. They will take part in the RSPB’s bird watch surveys. To round off their outdoor learning experience they will again light fires, toast marshmallows and heat up hot chocolate. Thanks to Miss Bannister for all of her help!
