Year 2 gardening project

In Year 2 we are learning all about plants and their life cycles in Science. We know the best way to explore is by lots of practical work. So in Year 2 we have taken on a gardening project in the school garden. We decided to test and explore the difference between planting a flower indoor in a pot and outdoor in the school garden. We dug up one of the flower beds and got rid of the weeds to get it all ready for our plants. We then planted our own gladioli bulbs in the garden and then planted one separate bulb in a pot we will keep inside, water and put near sunlight. Have a look at our pictures below of where we started. Every Friday we will be gardening and taking pictures of how our plants are doing. We are also planning to plant a salad/ vegetable patch. Keep an eye on this page to see how it develops!
