Sowing Seeds

Thanks to the generosity of several families, P6/7 pupils were able to plant several varieties of seeds last Friday.

Thank you very much for your donations of pots, tubs and seeds!

As part of our spring-themed focus fortnight, we discussed how to improve our playground for pollinating insects. P6/7 were able to plant sunflower seeds as well as their choice of a second flowering plant. Once the risk of overnight frost is passed, we will plant out our seedlings in various position around the playground.

UPDATE 31/5/21

Most of our seedlings germinated and are growing well. We started the process of “hardening off” before we plant them out.

UNCRC Article 24: Children have the right to the best health care possible, clean water to drink, healthy food and a clean and safe environment to live in. All adults and children should have information about how to stay safe and healthy.
