Fun in the sun exploring our new garden!

The toddlers have been very busy in the nice weather making changes to our outdoor space. They are absolutely loving our new water feature wall which gives them lots of early numeracy experiences as they pour and fill  whilst playing with water.

We also have new storage for the children’s wellies and they are developing their coordination and independence skills by attempting to put their shoes and wellies on themselves! They are very proud when they manage to do it!

They enjoyed the freedom of painting outdoors and playing in the purple sand. The children have also loved exploring othe new dinosaur kingdom.  One of our toddlers was delighted to find a snail and make a little house for it from grass and leaves.

We are looking forward to some more great changes coming to our toddler garden soon!!

National Gardening Week

It’s time to plant more peas.
I can pick some parsley.

What a busy time in the garden, the sun was shining and our plants needed tending. The peas and carrots that were planted last month are beginning to grow out of the ground. Little shoots are appearing everywhere and the apple tree has begun to blossom. It is so nice to see the garden waken up after winter but now the hard work begins, watering, weeding and waiting… whatever will grow up next. Our gardeners are hoping for potatoes and onions.

The rhubarb needs a drink.
How many apples will we get?
We need more mud.
