Leigh's Nurseries Newcastle

Spring Time at Leighs!


The Sunflowers have been interested in the changes of Spring and how things grow. We have been incorporating a little bit of fairytale in with reality and with the help of some fairy imagination the children became very invested in helping bring flowers into the nursery garden, learning about how they can grow when nurtured properly.

The Sunflowers used their mathematical skills to count their seeds, weigh the soil and measure the water. They were intrigued to measure already grown plants in and around the garden using rulers and tape measures. Within this learning the children also gained an understanding of the world around them and how different elements affect the healthy growth of plants and flowers. They spoke about their experiences at home and enjoyed swapping stories about their own flowers which have begun to grow already.

Using such a simple planting experience has given the children a deeper understanding of numbers, colours and communication skills!

Lots of love,

Leigh and the team xxx
