Gardeners Julie and Emma visited the year one pupils of King’s Cross Academy this month, with a agender to empower the five and six years olds with knowledge of all things seeds!
As part of the Seeds for Better World project we carried fruits and seeds and colours in pastels to the classroom…
Is a tomato a fruit or a vegetable?
Can we label sweet corn a seed?
How do walnuts grow?
Ask year one - for they are now sure to know!
After matching plants to their fruits, the children spent time looking through magnifying glasses at conkers, peas beans, leeks, giant seed pods, and even a Banksia nut pod all the way from Australia. Then using lots of colours created beautiful images of their specimens! Now they await the warmer months for their sowing and sprouting to beginning!
