Term 2, the grade 5/6 students spent time in the garden learning about biological sciences. They tested the pH levels of the garden bed soil, learnt all about seeds life cycles, planted and experimented with what seeds need to germinate and recorded growth comparisons, designed and built tee-pea structures, investigated waste and composting, learned how to care for chickens, taste tested, picked and created their own pizza's and finished with an amazing excursion to Pure Peninsula Honey learning all about bees and honey production.
Grade 5/6 students have been having fun in the garden this term! They are actively involved in soil testing, planting food crops, building structures, learning about water waste, food waste and composting. Each student keeps a workbook that is detailed & provides great insight to a behind the scene look at their school garden. They are half way through their term and are really keen to learn more, grow more and play active roles in their school garden.
