This last week in the Kitchen-Garden has been a little different! It’s planning week at Berwick Fields, so the usual grades haven’t been visiting the garden. Instead we’ve had 1/2K and 5/6G working together on some fun activities!
Today the 5/6 children buddied-up with a 1/2 student and gave them a “smelly tour” of the garden – showing their buddies lots of different plants that smell nice (and sometimes not-so-nice!)
Then the buddies worked together to make their own perfume!
You can read more about how we did this activity here: Perfume Making Activity
The students also made advertisements for their perfume, giving it a name and creating a magazine ad to encourage people to buy it. Which ad attracts you? Leave a comment at the end of this post and let us know!

The adults in the garden went “shopping” at the end of the lesson, seeing which ad attracted them them most and sniffing the different smells. We each chose a different perfume to wear for the day. The advertising certainly made a difference to our choices!
Ps… I think the Thyme perfume really worked for me – definately looked younger by the afternoon I wonder if anyone else noticed…?
