Gardening as part of the National Curriculum

Posted: 29/04/2013 at 22:21

To add a little to that GG, I think it is really important that children (and adults) understand where their food comes from and how the seasons affect what is available and that it is not just 'there' on the supermarket shelves.

Gardening as part of the National Curriculum

I've always reckoned that the almost the entire National Curriculum (bless its strangulating little socks) could be taught through gardening/growing. However, like music, modern languages and several other subjects, to impose it would mean it may be taught inadequately by people who don't really know much about it and don't particularly want to. Then the children would be turned off for life  I'm talking Primary age here as that's my experience.

Matty2 - or may I call you Matty  ?? I had a similar problem with kniphofias when I moved to my present abode. Once I'd got rid, I vowed never again!

Kestrels and kingfishers though I've never had either in my garden.

Knee pads are an essential item for me

Waht a difference a bit of sunshine makes. I suppose one 'advantage' of a long winter and late spring is that lots of flowers come at once!

Enjoying all the lovely pictures
