This week, grades began replanting their garden boxes and also planting seeds into a mini hot house to take back to their classroom.  There was lots of excitement about finding things within the garden including a squash, succulents, fruit trees and the mystery bean stalk which is growing tiny beans. The children enjoyed planting and learning about the parts of plants including how to look after them and care for them within their classroom.  As a part of our schools ANZAC commemorations for the 100th anniversary of Gallipoli, some grades were planting the Flanders Poppy seeds to begin the start of a memorial garden within our school grounds. We look forward to seeing these poppies grow!
