I am pleased to report that we have had great success with this years sunflowers. They are currently standing tall and proud with a few reaching nearly 6 foot!
The children have loved them and they have sparked many conversations and lovely comments –
“Emily, I love your dandelions”
“It’s really big”
“It’s as tall as the house!”
They’ve attracted lots of minibeasts including some beautiful butterflies.
To extend the children’s interest and learning we have worked them in to our arts and crafts sessions too with lots of colouring, drawing, sticking and gluing.
I am now busy thinking what to plant next that will create the same level of interest!
