Reception Visit to Hiller’s Nursery

We had a very enjoyable and exciting trip out to Hillier’s Garden Centre in Hermitage.  We investigated all of the fruit trees such as apples, cherries and pear trees.  We read the labels on some of the plants and decided we would have a go at writing labels for things out in our garden.  Some of the labels even had pictures of insects which we thought was interesting. We learnt that they tell us those plants are the ones that the insects like to collect nectar from. The vegetables and salads were very difficult to choose from but in the end we decided to get a few courgettes, butternuts, tomatoes and a couple of herbs that we might be able to use when we are cooking.

We paid for all our seeds and plants using coins, and learnt a little about using money. A great morning was had by all and the children were a great credit to our school.
