Say it with flowers…

This week the children in Reception learnt about the importance of gardening and how people use gardening skills to earn a living. The children heard about Mrs Low’s friend who is a florist. They looked at photographs of different jobs that she has to do in her shop and learnt about the different flowers she uses. Inspired by this the children brought their gardening topic to life by creating their own Garden Centre in the classroom. The children made bouquets, created packets for the seeds, planted beans and made posters for their shop. The children then enjoyed taking on the roles of gardeners, florists and shop keepers. In their writing the children wrote a letter to Mrs Low’s friend telling her all about their garden centre.
