  • Topic “Looking After Plants and Animals”: planting tomato seeds 

The Learners in P2 have planted their very own tomato seeds at school as part of Health Week and our class topic, Looking After Plants and Animals. Each child was also given a ‘Tomato Grow Chart’ to keep at home. Step 8 directs your child to bring any tomatoes that have grown back to school – at this stage please keep your tomatoes at home and continue to follow and enjoy the rest of the steps! We have other tomato plants at school to continue/complete the journey (all going well with the growing process!) We will keep you up to date via the class blog with which step we are on in class. 

  • Tomato Grow Chart: steps 1 and 2 achieved. Don’t forget at add stickers 1 and 2 to your chart!
