Tinsley Meadows Primary Academy

We heard about The Big Sunflower Project early in 2018 and were delighted when our application for seeds and to take part in the project was successful.

We were excited to receive the seeds and couldn’t wait to get planting.

We each planted our own sunflower and enjoyed observing and caring for them at school.

When our sunflowers had grown a little taller, we took them home.

We enjoyed drawing and writing about them at home with our grown-ups. We also painted sunflower pictures and talked about how seeds grow.

Logan enthusiastically cared for his sunflower at home. He shared lots of photographs of him looking after his sunflower as it grew taller.

We can’t wait to take part in the 2019 Big Sunflower Project this year and are looking forward to growing sunflowers and raising awareness of centronuclear and myotubular myopathy once again.
