We are half way through the term and wow have the children grown. That is why we have spent the week interacting with plants. We placed our white Carnations in water mixed with food dye to create rainbow flowers. Then got creative making our own sprout houses and grass heads. The highlight had to be the fantastic mini mystery gardens in the form of a Terrarium.

We had a donation of mega blocks by Amy and Mia Farago, thanks guys we had a lot of fun with them on Thursday afternoon. If you have anything that you feel could be useful to us, please have a conversation with me at pick up.

See you next week!
