The class have been learning about plants and that all plants come from seeds. The class learned about the best conditions for the growth. The class learned that most seeds need moisture, warmth and nutrients to germinate. Some plants however need cold and dark conditions to grow. The children also identified the many different types of seeds from apple seeds to the potato seeds. The class got the opportunity to put some of this new knowledge into practice. The class planted marigolds, peas and potatoes from seeds. It is almost a month since we planted the marigolds and the peas and three weeks since we planted the potato seeds. Sam, Sarah, Nadine, Seán and Eric all agreed to look after the seedlings over the Easter break. The progress is remarkable due to care and attention the seedlings received. Below you can see a selection of photos to see the progress our seeds have made.
