Pre-Prep had a fun time learning about and exploring the outside environment. The children talked about what they find in their gardens at home and explored the Pre-Prep gardens with all their senses. The Nursery and Reception children especially enjoyed the smelly garden and enjoyed picking the leaves, rubbing them between their fingers and identifying the smells of different plants. Year 1 and 2 explored their sensory gardens and began thinking about designs for a new garden and what their perfect garden would look like. The children measured and drew plans of the gardens. They researched the type of plants and features they would like to include in their new gardens and started to draw designs.
During the Wow days all of the children enjoyed walks around the Pre-Prep Nature Trail, which involved looking at and discussing different types of trees found within the school grounds. The children really enjoyed guessing why the Wellingtonia was tilting, seeing if they could all fit on the old tree trunk and guessing the age of the old Oak tree.
