Mrs Bucheler took us out into the Mercy Gardens. we looked again at how our vegetables were growing. We walked about their colours and shapes. We compared them to other things we knew. We thought cabbages looked like big green flowers! the broccoli was just like little green trees.
Next Mrs Bucheler showed us the vegetables she had bough to bring to school. We were amazed to see the bunch of orange carrots with their green leafy tops still on and the purple carrots too!
It is believed that long ago all carrots were purple, but people have selectively grown them until they were orange!! We compared the different types of carrots too.
We liked the time in the garden. We will write a story about the vegetables and describe our favourite one tomorrow!!
