Spring/Summer is such a great time for learning. The whole learning experience can be taken outside (on a rain free day) and there is such a huge variety of themes to inspire.
When launching HERUK, one of the issues that was at the forefront of our planning process, and which in fact inspired to launch HERUK in the first place was and is 'affordable resources' for home use. How many of us have been trawling the internet searching for a certain item, only to find its only available in school size quantities and prices!
One of the packs we put together was our 'Grow a Sunflower' kit; which includes everything you need in the right amount of quantities. You don't have to go out and buy a 15 kg bag of compost to plant 3 sunflowers ;)
The team at HERUK have had much fun planting our seeds, to complete the learning experience, we have been using a great set of worksheets from Teachers Pay Teachers. The pack is great for wall displays and worksheets and even includes a small book.
Check back soon as we post updates on our sunflower progress!
