Strawberry Picking

Strawberry Picking

Today we picked the strawberries from our secret garden. In small groups the children went in looking to see if they could find any fruit, any glimpses of red waiting to be eaten. It took a short while until one child spotted the berries and then there was no stopping them.

There were questions about why we couldn’t pick the green ones and when we could come back and get some more and the learning was in everything we did: looking at the plants, feeling the textures, noticing the colours, collecting the fruit on a plate, cutting them up and sharing them out.
