EY3 Mini Farm update

We have continued to further explore and plan the EY3 Mini Farm.

 

The children worked in small groups to create a model of the farm plan.  They chose materials such as clay and recycled materials to make their ideas come to life.

  

At the farm, the children met with the farmers to talk about the materials they need to build the structure for the EY3 Mini Farm.  They discussed the use of bamboo and how it is a strong and sturdy material to use.

Together, we explored the farm while searching for bamboo.  We found so much of it!

    

Then, we learned how to cut the bamboo so that we could take it back to our classroom and construct the planting boxes.

 

The bamboo was delivered from the farm and the children worked together to unload all of it.  It was decided that we would make two rectangle frames and one triangle frame with the bamboo.

With the help of parents during Community Time, the children tied the bamboo together so that it is stable before putting in soil.

We have also been planting seeds to get them ready for the EY3 Mini Farm.  Each child has chosen a seed plant and carefully observe the growth.

Action was even taken by one student who brought in another way to plant seeds.  Look at these wonderful egg shells that have been used to plant seeds in!

Together, we are continuing to make our ideas for the EY3 Mini Farm come to life!
