Student Activity: Planting Bulbs

The Hornby School students planted 210 bulbs of various types of narcissus on the bank along Sollans Road and in the plot in front of the school. Each student marked the area they planted with wooden sticks Alissa provided with their names. Then they spontaneously began putting little rocks around their planting sites. After patting the soil down, a design of  various size of circles appeared in the little landscaped plot in front of the school. Hopefully it’ll be a lovely sight next spring. This was Natural History’s first activity together with the students as part of the school’s theme on changing seasons. On October 22nd, we’ll be heading to Helliwell Park to plant native plants with the students.
