An end to all the hard work:
It was hard work, planting and looking after their plants everyday, watching them growing taller and taller. After a few months of nurturing in school, the class brought their plants home in order to plant them in their gardens and hope they grew even taller.
This August two of our current fourth class took pictures beside their sunflowers and were kind enough to bring in the photos to share with us. Both Aishling and Jodi did a great job with their flowers, helping them to grow to massive heights.
Aishling’s wonderful sunflower took pride or place in her garden, stretching taller than Aishling herself!!
While Jodi’s sunflower reached unbelievable heights, stretching higher than a one-storey building, with a beautiful bloom and great wide leaves!
Both girls did such excellent work and were so kind to remember to take photos of the finished project over the summer! We hope the other boys and girls managed to get such wonderful end projects as well! Well done!
When the roots started to appear through the bottom of our pots it was time to replant our sunflowers. We all brought in bigger pots and Ms Browne brought in compost to replant our sunflowers. The small pots our sunflowers were in were biodegradable so we could plant them straight into the compost.
16/03/16: We planted sunflowers today in school using compost and special, biodegradable pots. The compost is full of good things to help grow. We filled out pots with soil, put in our little sunflower seat and covered it with more soil. We watered them and then we put them in the window in our classroom where they would get loads of light! Hopefully they will germinate over the Easter holidays!
