Sunflowers in P1A

This week p1a started their mini topic all about sunflowers! We’ve already been able to order the Life Cycle of a Sunflower and have started our Sunflowers Diaries.

Each pupil in the class will plant a sunflower seed to take home next week. In their diaries they can keep track of how much it grows each week and write a description of the sunflower as it changes.

As well as growing sunflowers in class, the children also considered the work of Vincent Van Gogh. We discussed his painting ‘Sunflowers’ and used pastels to create our own version of it!


We had to wash our hand with lots of soap after all that smudging! Great job everyone! These pictures look lovely in our new classroom.
