watching our frogspawn grow and feeding the birds

Seed identification

Today we looked at the many different shapes and sizes of seeds. We smelt a lot of fragrant ones used in cookery then had a competition to label the seeds correctly

Exploding bull rushes

This spring Mrs Scullard found some bulrushes growing by a pond and brought them to school to see if they would grow by our pond.

We pulled them part and out came thousands of tiny seeds. Some we scattered and some we soaked and planted in pots.

Exploding bulrushes !!

Today we pulled apart some bulrushes to scatter the seeds around the pond area. We also soaked some seeds to plant in pots. Hopefully we will have some growing this time next year.

Bulrushes found on my holiday in Dorset.
Having fun exploding the seeds.
