Today it was sunny in the garden and year three and year six had the opportunity to use their imagination and creative writing skills. They were working with author and storyteller Margaret Bateson-Hill on a book making project based around our Secret Garden.

The children were inspired to look really carefully at all the plants that were growing. The size of the leaves, the flowers, the colours, the smells. Stones were examined and questions raised.  We hoped the robin would return and we heard some birdsong but not the robin.

 Children used their sense of smell, sight, touch and hearing they can't use taste yet but it won't be long.

The writing project will continue through the summer term as well as all the gardening activities.
