  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>We took our photo in our favourite place in our school playground. </li></ul><ul><li>We emailed the photo and a message to Witherlea School . </li></ul><ul><li>We told them who we are and where we like playing. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Finding out what we all know. <ul><li>Mrs Ferguson set up a wikipage. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>We wrote what we know about sunflowers. </li></ul><ul><li>We read what the others wrote. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Asking Questions. <ul><li>We sent a fax to the garden centre because we wanted to ask some questions about the sunflowers. </li></ul><ul><li>They didn’t respond to us. </li></ul><ul><li>We looked in a book instead. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Our mindmap. <ul><li>We wrote about sunflowers in the circles. </li></ul><ul><li>It was hard to write the letters because the circles were little. </li></ul><ul><li>We joined our mindmap with Witherlea’s on the wikipage. </li></ul>Put bug spray at the bottom to keep the bugs away. You can harvest the seeds. Sunflowers need to be watered every day in summer. Bees come and get the pollen from them. Their heads move where the sun grows. They need the sun to make them grow. The seeds are very little so you might need to plant 20. You need compost with worms and you need seeds too. Sunflowers need worms in the soil to help them grow. Sunflowers By The Grumpy Bears
  6. 6. Finding the best place to plant the sunflowers at our school. <ul><li>We picked 4 places. </li></ul><ul><li>We thought about the place with our yellow and black thinking hats. </li></ul><ul><li>The best place was the school garden. </li></ul><ul><li>Fence by Room 8 </li></ul><ul><li>Could get hit by balls. </li></ul><ul><li>A bit of shade. </li></ul><ul><li>Quite windy. </li></ul><ul><li>Water a wee way away. </li></ul><ul><li>Fence by Room 8 </li></ul><ul><li>Some sun. </li></ul><ul><li>Feels quite warm here. </li></ul><ul><li>School Edible Garden </li></ul><ul><li>It might hit the top of the wire fence over the garden. </li></ul><ul><li>School Edible Garden </li></ul><ul><li>It’s sunny </li></ul><ul><li>Very little shade. </li></ul><ul><li>Very good soil. </li></ul><ul><li>Easy to care for them there. </li></ul><ul><li>There’s a tap and a hose so it’s easy to water them. </li></ul><ul><li>Fence by the front of Rm 5 and 6. </li></ul><ul><li>If they get too hot and not enough water they will go flop. </li></ul><ul><li>Kids might run there. </li></ul><ul><li>Fence by the front of Rm 5 and 6. </li></ul><ul><li>Lots of sun. </li></ul><ul><li>You can check on them every day. </li></ul><ul><li>Easy to water them. </li></ul><ul><li>Lots of dirt. </li></ul><ul><li>Could tie them against the fence. </li></ul><ul><li>By the tree on the back field. </li></ul><ul><li>Balls might get kicked against the fence and hurt the sunflowers. </li></ul><ul><li>Trees make it a bit shady. </li></ul><ul><li>Children can play here. </li></ul><ul><li>Tall fence might block the sun. </li></ul><ul><li>Long way to bring water to. </li></ul><ul><li>By the tree on the back field. </li></ul><ul><li>Bit of sun/ lots of sun. </li></ul><ul><li>Fence to tie the sunflowers up to. </li></ul>Black Thinking Hat Yellow Thinking Hat
