Topic Enrichment - Spring 2

September 01, 2019

After his release, Nelson Mandela said about his job tending the prison garden,

“A garden was one of the few things in prison that one could control. To plant a seed, watch it grow, to tend it then harvest it, offered a simple but enduring satisfaction. The sense of being the custodian of this small patch of earth offered a taste of freedom.”

This half term's Topic Enrichment is to create a prison garden in a shoe box.
