Today, as part of Farming Friday, we have been busy planting acorns from Morrells Wood Farm ready to go into the greenhouse. When they have started to grow Farmer Derek has asked if we can take them back to the farm and plant them there. We can start a ‘Wombridge Woodland’.
We have been planting peas, peppers, chillis, basil and coriander, ready for the plant sale, to go with all our other plants that are growing already in the green house. Which ones would you like to buy?
Every Friday is Farming Friday in Class 1. We think about planting, growing and cooking and how this can help us develop our brain health. Today we planted bulbs ready to give our parents at Christmas. We looked at the shape of the bulb, talked about which way it should be planted and what it needed for healthy growth. Have you planted any bulbs this autumn?
We have planted bean seeds and will observe them grow. We put them in water and placed them in the warm sunlight. So we could observe the bean seeds growing, we placed them in a plastic beaker with a paper towel to support them staying near the edge of the beaker to make our observations easier. How do you think the seeds will change?
The roots for our plant in the plant pots are starting to too big and running out of room to grow. Today, we have been re-potting our plants so that each set of roots had their very own pot. We had to take out each big plant and then add more soil to the new pots.
Today we have planted sweet pea seeds as part of our ‘ Farming Friday’ learning. We will grow the seeds and look after them carefully and then plant them out in the spring. What seeds have you planted this year?
