Barfield School

An Independent Preparatory School for Girls and Boys

Budding Horticulturists

This week the Owls Nursery children excitedly boarded the new Barfield Minibus for a shopping trip to Squires Garden Centre.

They had already written their shopping lists previously in the classroom, using their phonic knowledge. What clever Owls you all are!

Upon arrival they followed a two-part instruction to find an item on their list and then place it into the shopping trolley.  Lastly and most enjoyably, they loved the visit to the pet corner, where they observed reptiles, fish and some cute furry friends! Such an exciting trip was had by all and they were so very polite and well behaved! 

The purchased seeds, compost and flowers will be planted throughout this half of term to learn about nurturing, growth and changes over time.
