The children in Sunflowers have been investigating with broad beans and have looked to grow them in different surroundings.
The staff talked to the children about what seeds/plants need to grow and set to with their investigations. They placed the broad beans in a clear wallet and stuck one on the window in the base room and one in the dark store cupboard.
The children were asked to make predictions about what they think would happen and then they just had to wait.
The results were quite surprising and the children were really excited about seeing the results.
This activity was then extended and the group looked at growing onions which they are looking to plant in the nursery garden.
