Secret garden role play area

I spent the morning at school creating a role play area for my new class of Year One children. Our topic is ‘Our World’ which begins by looking at our local environment, concentrating on mini beasts and plants, so I decided to create our own Secret Garden – in the classroom! It seemed a good idea at the time but I can see it getting very messy!
Children are supposed to get their hands mucky though aren’t they?! They can search for mini beasts in the soil or climb in to the tent to read about plants. They can also learn the names of mini beasts by looking at the labelled images on the walls and try their hand at planting using the seeds, compost, plant pots and watering cans.
