Sunflower competition

A big thank you to all schools who sent in photos of their wonderful sunflowers. We hope you all enjoyed our competition. We are pleased to announce that Saltersgate Junior School in Scawsby, Doncaster is the winner with the tallest sunflowers at over three metres high! The school was presented with a gardening and outdoor activity kit plus a pack of science resources.

In winter, the sunflower seeds can be collected and stored for planting again next spring. Or the children may prefer to let the birds feed on the sunflower heads!
