The Big Bumbles have been planting herbs in the raised beds in the garden this week. They have firstly explored the herbs by noticing their different smells and describing the scent. By digging, planting and looking after seeds the children have been developing their knowledge of plants and growth through discussions with each other and practitioners. Through observation of growth the children are beginning to understand about living things and the need for water to grow. The children are looking forward to cutting the herbs down and exploring these further.
