On Friday Ms McHugh’s senior infants were planting flower bulbs with Ms Tighe. These flowers are pollinator friendly, which is important for the bees and butterflies. The class were learning about the parts of a flower in science and got to see up close what roots and shoot look like. We also talked about what a bulb/plant needs to grow: sun, water and nutrients.

This links with the Green Schools previous theme of biodiversity. Thanks to the 5th class for helping to get the flower baskets ready for planting.

Hopefully we will have some lovely flowers in the spring for everyone to enjoy, including our bee and butterfly friends. 🦋🐝
