This week the Reception children have been learning all about flowers, and how they grow. They have looked at lots of different types of flowers, and discovered that they start off as a tiny seed, which grows in the ground, and eventually turns into a lovely flower.
To help the children understand how it works, they have been planting their very own sunflowers. Firstly, they had to put some soil into a cup. Then, they put the seed into the soil. The children then used a watering can to water the soil, because the seeds need water in order to grow! Finally, the children put their sunflower cups in the window sill so that they can absorb lots of sunlight, because they also need sunshine to grow. We are really excited about our sunflowers, and we will check on them every day to see if they are growing!
