The garden wk beginning 5/07/21

In the garden this week we have been enjoying some of the sunshine, we made a cosy little den story corner for the boys and girls to relax. The children could draw what they seen or learned about in the book with crayons using their imaginative skills.

We have also been doing activities as is is American week at Oakburn, the boys and girls have been making their own American flag, using their fine motor skills cutting out the flag and stars and glueing them.

The children have being interested in ingredients and mixing in our mud kitchen area, to extend the learning we had our ingredient rice along with some empty water were bottles, the learning was extended as we used these to make musical instruments for the garden den/stage area so the children can sing songs and make there own music and songs.

These are the children’s musical instruments that some of them made.

Exploring insects have been the main focus in the garden this week. Looking for different types of bugs in different places and identifying them. We pressed toy bugs into clay to explore the insects in more depth and detail.

We have been planting more seeds in the garden! Putting soil in pots and sprinkling carrot seeds on top, we decided to bring them inside to grow at the moment but will plant them in our allotment once they germinate.

The Garden Wk beginning 7/6/21

Some hard work has been going on in Oakburn’s garden. We have been planting potatoes in our planters and pretty flowers in pots, whilst discussing what plants need to grow. We are excited to plant lots more in the garden!

The children have also been exploring woodwork tools and completing their own risk assessment. We used our fine motor skills to saw legs off a table and screw into apples. Soon we will be deconstructing different electrical items!
