Term 4 - Beginning to plant

A huge thank you to Mrs Lloyd and Room 2 who had a busy time last term growing a range of vegetables for us to plant in our garden.  Room 2 has grown lots of beans, corn, radishes, beetroot and some sweet peas to attract the bees and brighten the garden area. 
Room 6 has also been growing things.  During guided reading one of the reading groups read a book about grow peas and they decided to follow the instructions and try to grow their own.  We have transplanted the pea plants into our garden and we are all looking forward to eating them soon. 
Thanks to Mitre 10 who, through the 'Tui Garden Competition', supplied us with free seed raising & garden mix, as well as several punnets of seedlings.
