Planting Practice

Next term Little Acorns begin their learning on Growing and Changing, they will learn all about humans, animals and plants! In preparation, the children practised planting (yummy) seeds. First, the children made their very own soil, they mixed together eggs, water and chocolate cake mix! Whilst they waited patiently for their soil to cook, they watched Michael Rosen’s poem “Chocolate Cake”. After lunch the soil was ready, the children each added 4 spoonfuls of soil, seeds of their choice (raisins, rainbow drops and marshmallows), covered their seeds with even more soil and then watered their seeds (with chocolate and strawberry sauce!) I wonder if the ‘seeds’ will have a chance to grow?
