Make a Difference Week
Year 1 boys have been learning about plants this term. Miss Lawry and the Year 1 boys wanted to make a difference to our school community and link it to our topic, so we decided to plant some flowers and bulbs.
On Wednesday, we all got involved in brightening up our playground. The boys got themselves into teams and with Miss Lawry’s help, planted lots of beautiful flowers and bulbs in big blue pots.
The boys were a part of every stage, from moving the pots to the right place, filling them up with soil, one of the things a plant needs to survive, of course. The boys each added in some compost- this gives the plans the nutrients they need. Next, we chose some flowers and after Miss Lawry demonstrated how to plant them, the boys each had a go at planting their own one. Water is the next important thing a flower needs, so naturally, we got out the hosepipe and each team watered their freshly planted flowers.
Then the clean-up commenced, all the empty flower containers, soil and compost bags needed clearing and of course brooms were to the ready! There was soil and compost in lots of places…some of it, not in the pots!
Year one had so much fun making a difference to our playground, we hope all the boys enjoy watching our flowers and plants grow as much as we will!
Thank you so much to our mummy’s and daddy’s for giving us all the pots, soil and flowers to plant.
You have helped make a difference to us and our school friends!
