This year the children from the senior room learned about plants. First the children learned about the structure of plants, what each part does and what plants need to germinate and grow into seedlings. They learned about how seeds are scattered and learned about the life cycle of a plant. The children also learned about how plants make their own food in the process called photosynthesis.
Finally the children planted their own pumpkin seeds. These will be monitored over the next few weeks and planted in the school’s raised vegetable garden where they will grow over the next few months in preparation for Halloween.
