Reception Garden Centre

Mrs Brown came to help reception set up our outdoor area.  The reception children have set up a garden centre to watch how things grow, change and live.
We investigated the wildlife area and took it in turns to do some pond dipping. Each class were lucky enough to  set up a tank in their classroom to watch how the frog spawn changes.
We built a bug hotel in our outdoor area to encourage insects and bugs and we also developed our sensory area planting herbs and shrubs and planting our very fairy garden!
We looked at the beehives and tried on the protective clothing, we also did a question and answer time about the bees.
