Harvesting Sunflower Seeds. 18/9/20
On Friday morning, Sarah C cut the heads off the ones that were ready to harvest and brought them in to school. We looked at them closely with the visualiser in the classroom, and the children could see how the sunflower seeds grow in the centre of the flower. Later when we were in the outdoor classroom, each group was given a flower or two, and they had the opportunity to harvest them. We found some tiny snails, and earwigs in the sunflowers, so we gave them a comfy new home in the bug hotel! We hope to share these sunflower seeds with everyone in our school by planting them next Spring, and allowing the whole school to watch them grow!
