Runner bean planting

Today, we took advantage of the beautiful weather and paid a visit to our school garden. We planted runner beans in the year 3 bed and watered them carefully. We can't wait to see them this space for more photos as they start to shoot.


We had a visit from a lovely lady from the A- Life team who came to speak to us about how we can keep ourselves healthy. We completed a number of exciting activity stations to learn about healthy eating, how our body works, the amounts of sugars that can be found in different drinks, where different healthy foods originate from, the list goes on. It was so much fun!
