I have been in to school today and I went to look at the gardens. There were some beautiful, red poppies growing in one flower bed. As I walked around I saw a poppy growing on a path, away from the soil in the garden. Can you find out how that poppy plant might have got there? Think about the seeds that are needed to grow a new poppy plant. How did the seeds get to the path? I look forward to your ideas.
