For the Queen's Jubilee, the children made egg and cress sandwiches. We grew our own cress inside egg shells which we decorated with faces. The children were surprised at how quickly the cress grew! The sandwiches were yummy too!
Learning about Plants
We have been learning about different plants and how they grow. We decided to add some flowers to our nature area and herbs to our mud kitchen. The children enjoyed learning how to plant and followed each step carefully. The children have been keen to make sure that our plants stay watered and are excited to watch them grow.
We really enjoyed learning all about worms and making our own wormery!
To collect the worms, we tested 4 different techniques:
- jumping up and down to cause vibrations
- flooding the soil
- twanging a fork
- going on a habitat hunt
To make our wormery we had to layer stones, soil and sand. The soil and sand then created alternate layers. This took a long time but we were excited about the end result! Finally we put our worms into their new home and put a layer of grass on the top!
We hope they like their new home 🏡
