We have grown our beans from seed initially using only a plastic bag and a wet paper towel ( well we are in school!). The beans were planted into pots once they had grown some decent roots and shoots and then were left outside.
Today, some of Y4 and Y5 have taken the beans out to plant in the newly dug vegetable patch on the field.
We have found some interesting ‘treasure’ as we forked the soil over, pottery pieces, bits of old clay pipe and a rusty hook. All interesting talking points.
The children planted the beans in two lines and we have put in a line of string to support them.
A job well done by Class 3, now we have to look after them until harvest.
