As the weather is getting colder, all children must bring a coat to school. They should also bring an extra fleece/jumper to wear in school as the windows are open. This can be any colour and should stay in school.

Windowsill garden


Grow a windowsill garden using food scraps such as carrot tops and shrivelled potatoes. Observe how these scraps grow roots and shoots to form a new plant. Talk about what plants need in order to grow well (such as light and water) and set up a control to see what happens to scraps which don’t get these essentials. Describe and record observations.

Note: Food scraps that will grow easily on a windowsill include pineapple, onions, potatoes, celery, garlic, onions and carrot tops.
