For our unit for this term we are studying gardening and growing which will then lead into a study on 5+ a day and fruit and vegetables.
In the first week of term we read the big book called, "The Sunflower Tree," and did paintings of sunflowers and wrote stories about these. Feel free to come in and look at the children's great work. We also planted some giant sunflower seeds.
We read the book, "The Great Bean Race," and are trying different ways of looking after them to find out what grows best. Some of the seeds are in normal soil and some in seed-raising mix, some are getting watered and some aren't, some are in the daylight and some in the dark.
We have also planted some rocket, cucumber, lettuce and tomato seeds.
