Samakee Earth Day Action
A date for the diary. Earth Day is Friday, April 22nd and at Samakee, we will be celebrating a little earlier, the week beginning March 28th.
For Earth Day 2016, children and teachers have been working on a whole school garden project. All year groups have been working hard in the garden to grow some food in an allocated garden spot. The children have been planting seeds and tending the plants, and eventually, we will plan a meal or snack with the produce.
Here are some photos of children in EYFS busy planting and tending the growing shoots. We also have outdoor mark making sets to encourage drawing and writing when children are visiting the garden. The children are invited to look closely at plants growing, the changes over time and have a go at doing observational drawings.
When you are collecting your child from school, please take some time to look at the children’s plant growing area.
