Weeding the forest school area.

Our planting area is covered in tiny sycamore plants where the sycamore tree nearby has dropped its ‘helicopter’ seeds onto the soil. We pulled them up and examined the plants and roots. Some of them still had the seed attached to them.

Learning about different types of seed and how they germinate

We looked at a variety of seeds like pumpkin, hollyhock, coconut, avocado and rice. We learnt how the seeds germinate and grow into plants. Next, we planted sunflower seeds and hopefully they will grow into tall sunflower plants growing around the school.
