The children have been enjoying exploring Spring; baby animals, the weather and the flowers. The children smelled the flowers, touched their petals and we tried to describe them using language such as yellow, green, soft, pretty, long etc and then painted them too. They have also been interested in gardening and how flowers grow. We are going to plant our own flowers in the nursery garden soon, giving them lots of water and sunlight to help them grow.
