How to enjoy your plant
- Get maths involved on your Sunflower Day. Create a chart and get the children to measure their sunflower weekly. Download the EYFS worksheet.
- Link to art and do some oil paintings, observational drawings, pastel drawings on floors and walls. Use Inspiration from the painting Sunflowers by Van Gough.
- Hook up some literacy and write up how you planted your sunflower, or do some fictional work around it. Give them a title like ‘The Sunflower that Talked’ and let them roll with it. We have lots of eBooks to choose from too.
Sunflowers are a fabulous first plant for children to know the name of and how to care for. STEM is a fast-growing area to teach Science in the early years and our nature-based curriculum will help you integrate this in a very natural way. Become a more sustainable teacher and reduce your school’s carbon footprint.
