Our Kitchen Garden bed is growing really well. You can see the carrots popping their little orange bits above the soil, while their green frilly tops dance in the wind.
You can see the goodness in the dark green of the broccolli leaves, growing bigger and brighter every day.
And, you can see the white butterfly flowers of the snowpeas fluttering in the breeze as they think about turning into pea pods, now that we’ve got the plants climbing up our new made up fence….
It’s all about food – growing our own organic, healthy food right here to eat very soon.
Hmmm….I wonder if these are all living things? Check the other posts and songs and decide for yourself if they have all the characteristics of living things! 😎
Celebrating our Kitchen Garden (which will be your very own inside the gates in Years 4 and 5) and how amazing our Year 3 kitchen garden bed looks! Incredible gardeners, people!!! 😎
I know India was wondering about the scarecrow competition…so a quick update. Mr Mcleod has not judged the competition yet, but Lee is living with his scarecrow friends in the Kitchen Garden. We hope he is working hard during the holidays to keep all those birds off the yummy vegies!

What amazing students we have in Room 6! They heard about the Scarecrow Challenge and decided that together we could build a fantastic scarecrow – but we would ALL have to help and bring in things to put together to make him.
This is the result – Lee Scarecrow. He is good looking (in a scarecrowy way), tall and very hard-working! He is going to be so happy in the Kitchen Garden as he has his gloves on ready for action, and a packet of seeds in his pocket! Mr. Mcleod does need help, and this tall, strong denim-boy looks like the perfect helper!
Well done, everybody! All the things you each did, bringing in materials, helping to build him or stuff the body to give him his shape, only worked because you are all IMPORTANT PARTS OF A WHOLE! An excellent lesson in how much more we can do together!
Mrs. Veary 🙂
P.S. I am so proud of your efforts, I’ve published him on the Community Blog too!
