The Gardener by Sarah Stewart



Children learning at home and those learning in school have enjoyed a project week this week based on the book ‘The Gardener’ by Sarah Stewart. Activities have included writing letters, finding out about The Great Depression (1929), using gardening to practise phonics, making miniature gardens, predicting the ending to stories, thinking about how stories make us feel, creating fruit and vegetable animals, making seed bombs, writing descriptions about spring, using observational skills to draw plants and much, much more. it has been a wonderful week to say goodbye to Lockdown and welcome a new, ‘Spring’ start to coming back to school.

Thank you to Tesco, Northallerton for supporting us with our project.
