Planting seeds

This afternoon, we have been planting some seeds.  We used some paper pots that the children made yesterday and we learnt to ‘fill to to the top’ very carefully with compost.   Lots of fun was had with the water squirter to soak the compost!    The children then chose the seeds they would like to plant and we talked about the colours of the pictures on the seed packets.    Of course, the newly planted seeds needed more watering!

We then talked about writing labels to help us remember what we had planted, some children copied the words, ‘sunflower’ or ‘cosmos’ from the packs, some needed a little more help.

One final squirt to give them lots of water for the bank holiday weekend and we said we would check them again next week!
