Last term Oaks class children planted some sunflower seeds. In Science they learned all about what plants need to grow tall and strong! They could name the different parts of a plant. Each child took a sunflower home with them to see how tall it would grow.
I took a few small sunflower plants home too and mine grew really tall! When they started drooping and the petals starting falling at the end of the summer, I cut the stems and brought them to school for the children to explore. They enjoyed picking out the seeds one by one using tweezers and using a magnifying glass to look closely at the head of the sunflower.
