Have a look at how well our plants have grown over the past few weeks. Teacher says that they look so well because we have taken extra special care of them. We will be bringing them home over the next few days and will transplant some of them in our own gardens.
- Our broadbeans have grown so much (Jack would be proud!!).
- Our sunflowers are coming along nicely
- See how the plants bend towards the light.
