The children at Polkadot Stratford have been very busy planting beans, ready to watch them grow in to big bean stalks just like Jack and the Bean Stalk! The children explored the seeds and compost using tools to scoop and fill their plant pots. The children will be investigating and observing the growth of the beans over the coming weeks. They will then plant them into the vegetable planter in the allotment area to see how tall they grow.
Everyone have also been enjoying looking after the chicks when they came to visit from Gingham Pre-School! The children have been holding and stroking the chicks as well as caring for them throughout the day.
