Two weeks ago, Redwood Park carried out a mass planting of sunflower seeds.

George led our assembly, showing everyone the best way to fill our pots and sow the seeds.

They have been sitting in sunny spots around school germinating and are now ready to be planted outside.

Some of them may come home for growing in the garden and others will be planted out around school.

As spring runs into summer and autumn we will watch them grow, looking to see which becomes the tallest and which has the largest flower.

We will save the seeds to feed to our hens and to plant again next year.

Please send in any photos or videos of the sunflowers if they come home to you.
