The Enormous Turnip and other Vegetables

We have pulled and yanked and heaved and dragged a selection of vegetables from their soil. The Pioneers looked over the root systems and pulled off the stems and the leaves. The spiders and woodlice ran for their lives. We read a number of books about vegetables and talked about our experiences of planting,growing,harvesting and eating.

We read different versions of the old favourite,  “The Enormous Turnip” and retold our version with a story map and puppets to help us.

It’s been a very lovely week of learning together.
