I have been working with St Joseph's primary school reception class. We've grown beansprouts in class (rather unsuccessfully) and have sown peas - "i like peas!" - and radish - "what's radish?" - in the raised planter in the playground. This planter is smack bang in the middle of the playground and is aswamp with overexcited littluns every playtime. To give the plants some protection from footballs and feet I suggested building a net cage. I cobbled this together in the pouring rain.
Sometimes I stand back afterwards and admire my construction skills. Don't think I can this time - like many a poor workman I'm going to blame the tools.
