Year 1 reading garden… you won’t believe your eyes!


You might have been surprised by what you saw in our garden this week…children reading to plants! Owl Class ( Year 1) have been enjoying good books with some unusual listeners! To encourage reading and wellbeing, the children read their favourite stories aloud to the flowers and plants in our nature garden. It was such an enjoyable and peaceful afternoon, they think they will come back again.

Garden School is an important part of every child’s education at Sulivan. Every class two Garden School lessons each week. This is a vital part of our enriched curriculum and is supported by our gardener. Teachers plan a range of stimulating learning experiences, wellbeing activities and “Just Be” time for children to enjoy and benefit from the natural world.
