Gardening is great for children! Did you know that gardening:

πŸƒ is a great mind and body workout;

πŸͺ΄ is a fantastic way for us to burn off energy and relieve stress;

πŸƒ encourages us to develop a love for the outdoors;

πŸͺ΄ fosters our curiosity about the surrounding world;

πŸƒ helps develop our hand-eye coordination and builds our physical strength;

πŸͺ΄ is a great way to teach us responsibility;

πŸƒ helps us develop our patience;

πŸͺ΄ is a great way to practise our literacy and numeracy skills;

πŸƒ helps us practise social skills; and  

πŸͺ΄ that’s just for starters!  

Our Year Two gardeners have got stuck in and are loving developing those green fingers! We’ve been busy weeding and preparing our raised beds. We’ve also been planting so many bulbs and seeds, including peas, sunflowers, lupins, gladioli, tulips, and we’ve only just got started!
