Gardening and exploring outside is a fantastic way to spend time as a family! Whether it’s planting flowers or vegetables it’s a great way for children to get in touch with nature and learn whilst having fun!
The importance of introducing children to their natural surroundings has now been integrated into the National Curriculum as early as Key Stage 1. This not only gradually teaches children the importance of plants and nature, but life cycles, effects of seasons and even ventures into healthy eating.
