Herb Gardens and House Corners

We have been developing our house corner at Old Coates House and the children are loving it.

We have added resources for writing shopping lists, letters, and cards. This is bringing literacy to life and the children are completely enthusiastic about sending out special messages.

We have also started to add different herbs from our herb garden.

This is developing language skills as the children are learning the names of the herbs and our discussions are all about what foods the herbs can be found in.

The children now want to add a window box with herbs so that they are available and can be accessed independently.
