We love gardening

Our children have loved being part of Food4Life.

We have been able to develop our EYFS curriculum to enhance the opportunities the children have for growing, harvesting, cooking and tasting the things they have grown.

We have incorporated our learning in to the story of the week, for example, we planted beans just like in Jasper's Beanstalk, and realised it takes a long time for plants to grow.

We read Winnie's Pumpkin and made Pumpkin Soup from the recipe at the back of the book.  We also carved the pumpkin, looked at the seeds and the flesh and chopped and mashed to see what would happen.

It has certainly enriched the children's learning and I hope begun to foster a love of gardening that will continue to grow.
