Armed with our gloves and trowels we headed out into the gardens this morning to tackle some of the old growth and nettles. On our journey of discovery we encountered many wiggly worms and some potato jewels in the ground – what an exciting morning! Lots of filling plant pots and comparing the capacities. We persevered in getting the potatoes out of the ground and took turns to dig around them.
In the curiosity cube this week the children discovered some ‘shiny jewels’ from the forest floor.
Sehaj and Zachary had lots of questions and theories about where they had come from. Elsie was very insistent that the conkers had definitely been polished prior to being put in their cases!
