To launch their new topic – Living Things – Year 1 have been talking about plants. They read the story of The Tiny Seed, and started to think about all the things that plants need to survive and grow to be big and healthy.
The children made mini greenhouses using a plastic bag and cotton wool or tissue, and planted a broad bean in the bag. The children hung them in the window where they will be nice and warm. Year 1 also planted different kinds of seeds in pots using soil. In Apple class, they planted peas, sweet peas and cress. Year 1 also planted seeds outside in the school garden. They explored the different plants being grown there by other classes. The children are very excited to watch their plants grow!
