We have been gardening today. We cleared the weeds in the box before planting some vegetable seeds. We planted carrots, beetroot and pumpkins and then watered them. We know we will have to wait a long time for them to grow.
We went onto the field today for PE and had lots of fun exploring new things. We discovered the outdoor classroom, hens and the nature garden. Then we practised our ball skills by passing and kicking.
