Wonder Tree

The children are already coming up with some great wonderings about our inquiry on seeds and growing. Check out Room 15's 'Wonder Tree' for some of the great questions that the children have posed.

Little Garden

Room 15's Little Garden is going well, with all the plants that are supposed to have germinated by 7 days already growing well.

Thank you for all the little pot donations. We plan to use the double ups to carry out some investigations over the next few weeks.

Gardening Gloves...

On Friday we plan to plant some potatoes to see how many we can grow in a bucket!  If you have some gardening gloves to bring for this, it would be a great idea!

Please remember to keep collecting the little plant pots from New World and bring them a long to class at the beginning of Term 4.
