Sunflowers measure up for Year 1!

Leave a comment

Last year pupils in Mrs Bird’s class (now in Year 2) planted some sunflower seeds…and look how they grew! The windy weather on Tuesday night blew some of the pots over, so this morning Mrs Bird’s new Year 1 pupils picked them up and straightened them. Then they got tape measures and rulers and, as part of their maths work, measured them. They found that the tallest was over 1.5 metres high!

Once the flowers have lost their bloom, there will be hundreds of seeds to be made into seed balls in Bird Club. These are sure to be snaffled up by woodpeckers, sparrows and jays – and our resident HOHS squirrels!
