What could be more tempting than the taste of a delicious, fresh, ripe strawberry in summer? At the front of the school building is our school’s strawberry patch. Recently the Lower Primary students harvested lots of strawberries!
During spring, the students were responsible gardeners and looked after their strawberries by watering, fertilising and pulling weeds from the strawberry patch. Their gardening activities are related to their Social Sciences Topic – “Growing Plants”. To protect their strawberry plants, the students set up Shelly the scarecrow to scare birds away and to stop them from pecking at the growing strawberries.
When they picked the strawberries, the students carefully washed them and put them into cupcake holders to share with Upper Primary schoolmates and staff. While in the classroom, the students made strawberry milkshakes.
Thank you, Lower Primary, and we always appreciate nature gifts.
