Over the last few week the boys have been working on Christmas table decorations in horticulture.
We have used trees stumps that have been cut down to 2cm thickness. The boys had to create a Christmas scene using different materials such as fir cones, lolly pop sticks, pot pourri, baubles. The pupils really enjoyed this activity and they learnt to share ideas and to improve on their initial design.
The impact of involving pupils in Horticulture will enhance literacy and numeracy, including the use of a wider vocabulary and grater oral skills. It also helps the pupils develop fine motor skills, increased confidence , resilience and self esteem.
