The children prepared the planters by digging up the weeds and adding new compost to the soil. Each child planted their own winter flowering plant. We planted cyclamens and winter pansies. We talked about how the plants from summer have died and how the leaves on the trees are changing colour because it is Autumn. We looked at the roots of the plants and talked about their purpose and that we need to give our plants water to help them to grow. The children will look after the plants throughout the winter months.
