Fruit and Vegetables
Vegetables: This term we have been harvesting our vegetables in Nursery garden. Tomatoes, carrots, courgettes and pumpkins have all grown really well this year.
We grew them, watered them and now we have harvested them to share in Nursery.
While preparing them to cook and eat we learn:
About their different characteristics through close examination.
How to work hygienically by washing hands and wearing aprons.
How to use safety knives to cut and slice.
Lots of new words to describe their appearance, smell, taste, texture and colour.
Apple Day: Our school orchard is planted full of old English apple and pear varieties. Nursery children have been learning where and how apples and pears grow.
