Gardening in the sun

Year 2 were fortunate enough to have a visit from Suzanne from ‘The Big Local’ Project today. We braved the heat to go outside and plant sunflower seeds. First, we had to soften the soil to make it suitable for planting. Next, we added vermiculite to help keep the soil nice and wet. We put some of the soil in to the pot before adding the seed. Finally, we filled the pot to the top with soil and watered them. The plants are going to an allotment.
