The green-fingered reception children at St Botolph’s Primary School in Botesdale have had lots of fun learning how things grow. The 19 new pupils have planted seedlings in their school garden, written labels and watered them in. They are also going to have a sunflower race to see who can grow the tallest plant. In the classroom they have set up their own garden centre and even made their own seed packets.
Next they will work on a topic on oceans, sea creatures and ocean habitats and hope to pay a visit to the Sealife Centre.
Reception teacher Charlotte Clements, helped by teaching assistants Maria Skinner and Sandra Beard, said the pupils plan out their own topics and decide what they want to do.
