Observing the seasons and animal care!

We love being outside in Reception and we’ve been so busy recently planting, deadheading and watering despite the chilly weather! Every week the children help me to clean out the guinea pigs and they’re now so good at this that they can do it by themselves! We have picture instructions which help us remember what to do! We’ve planted potatoes, mint and strawberries at the classroom door and other herbs around the outdoor area! We can’t wait for everything to pop up now the tulips, daffodils and hyacinths are passed. Lots of the insects have been very busy too and in the last week we’ve encountered spiders and their webs, caterpillars, bumble bees and worms!
