The Fabulous Flowering Fairy Garden!

The whole of Y1 have been busy preparing for our fairy garden. They have been designing and making structures and beautiful accessories. They have included fairy houses, mushrooms, gates, ponds, bridges and much more. They have also planted some amazing seeds including chives, radish, cress and some weird wiggly plants???

Please ask them the parts of a plant we have been learning about in topic.

Please come and have a look at the fairy garden in our conservatory.
