Exploring ‘Errol’s Garden’ by Gillian Hibbs


Over the past few weeks, LB 1 have taken on the role of ‘Gardeners’ like Errol in the story ‘Errol’s Garden’ by Gillian Hibbs.

We became gardeners of our own gardening plot and have prepared it for ready for our own planting of bulbs.



Some of us loved finding mini beasts. Others were not so sure!

We also did a little bit of planting within the classroom – cress. We are observing it grow and making sure that we water it daily. Watch this space to see which gardener is most successful.


                   Day 1                                                                           Day 5


In addition to sowing our seeds, we have explored the types of flowers that Errol may have grown. We used our senses to feel, smell and describe the similarities and differences between the flowers. Seven days on and the classroom still smells like a florist.



As part of our IT learning, we became photographers for the day, photographing Errol’s garden landscapes.
