Tulips and Beans
In March Tulip room were busy planting tulip bulbs, when we arrived back after the Easter break we were excited to see that they had grown into beautiful flowers. It must have been all that rain we had over the holidays! As you can see we continued to water them using our watering cans, sourcing water from the water butt. We have shown lots of interest in helping the tulips to grow and using our senses to explore them. It has really helped us to develop an understanding of our natural world and environment.
At the beginning of this term all the tulip leaves had fallen off so we carefully took the bulbs out and have put them away to replant at the end of the year. We have now planted beans in our wooden planter, they are growing really tall, we have been busy watering them too, it’s especially important to do this with all the hot weather we have had recently. We now need to get some canes to help them grow even taller and secure them in the wind.
Keep a look out for updates on the beans and our other outdoor learning over the next few weeks of term!
