Hello Year 2!
I have managed to solve my technical issues so I can finally update you on my sunflower! :)
A quick update...
I have been watering it and keeping in the window but I haven't seen any growth yet :( I am hoping that by next Friday there may be some signs of shoots growing, I think I am being impatient!
I have put some holes in the bottom of the cup and put it in a tub to water it.
Hope yours are going well!
All of the adults in Year 2 want you to have the best Easter holidays and enjoy a more relaxing time.
We encourage you to get outside in the garden (if you can) and enjoy the weather whilst we still have it!
Instead of work here are some suggestions of what you could do:
1. Build dens
2. Go mini beast hunting in the garden
3. Do some baking (Easter nests are always a hit with the family!)
4. Have an Easter egg hunt
5. Design an Easter egg
6. Have an egg and spoon race (try not to get too messy!)
7. Make your own Easter bunny
8. Bird watching in the garden
9. Go for a walk (with family)
10. Arts and crafts afternoon
Remember these are only examples. ?
We hope you have a great 2 weeks and we will update you with work on the last Friday of the holidays to be prepared for the following week!
You are doing a great job! Try not to eat too much chocolate! ?

Miss Adams is having some technical issues but she will update you on her sunflower on Monday! :-)
