Spring has Sprung!

Spring has definitely sprung here at Northgate! - The sun is shining, the birds are singing and we are planting! 

All of our rooms are collecting the Woolworths seeds and growing various plants. Some rooms are focusing on vegetables and some on herbs,  some of the rooms are collecting them all, but ALL of the children are enjoying the process! 

Planting the seeds allows the children see the growth cycle of plants from start to finish, help gain the responsibility of caring for the plant and nurturing it to keep it alive, and (hopefully) at the end provides them with produce to try or a beautiful flower to admire. 

How's your garden going? Spending time in the garden, planting, weeding, watering or digging not only gives you the benefit of fresh air and sunshine, but also enables you to discuss the natural environment, how everything contributes to each other and discover and name plants and bugs. Often what we see as chores is still a learning adventure for children! 

Happy Spring!
