Reception planting in the pond

Today Reception children were able to plant some plants in the pond. We are hoping that the new plants will help the pond to clear the pond as it is rather green and smelly at the moment.  The children said what they thought the plants looked like and then we carefully carried the plants to the pond.  Some plants were very heavy and so it took more than one person to carry them.   The children remembered that they had to kneel down by the pond so that they do not fall in.  We will keep visiting the pond to see how the plants are growing and if it is becoming clearer. Watch this space!
