St Peter's 8-13 Eco Club enjoyed a perfect sunny day picking sunflowers last week. The club loved cutting down the flowers and building a beautiful display at the front of the school. They were very proud of how big they've grown!
Last summer all the children were being taught in bubbles. The J2 children were the very first children to plant in the new eco beds which had been skilfully built by our gardening team and kindly paid for by the Friends of St Peters 8-13.
In every bed the children planted a packet of sunflowers. These tiny seeds grew into small plants by the end of the summer term but really took off in the summer holidays. On returning to school in September the Eco Club were greeted by a forest of 12-foot-high sunflowers.
They have now picked them to harvest the sunflower seeds to feed to the birds or to roast and eat themselves. The children made a beautiful display at the front of the school for parents and guardians to enjoy at the end of the day.
