Seed Poetry


We wrote these poems about our growing seeds….


 Seed …peacefully waiting for life

Warmly covered and comfortable in the soil

Protected and warm

Seed …. bursting out like a beautiful flower.

By Shaima


Peacefully the seeds wait for life

Comfortable, covered in soil

Warmly awaken

As the water hits  they launch out of the soil.

By Lizzie


Seed …. the seed waits calmly for life.

Blanketted in the moist soil, the seed awaits growth.

Feeling energy to live, the seed tingles with warmth and awakens.

The shoot blasts through the soil as if out of a cannon.

By Irina, Gogouli, Odelia and Fonzelina


Seeds …. waiting to be planted

Seeds …. using the soil as a warm bed

Seeds … mysteriously awaken from deep sleep

Seeds …. exploding through the soil and sprouting leaves.

By William


Seeds … sleeping peacefully and calmly waiting for life

Waiting  ….

A surge of life ..

Bursting for a new adventure.

By Irene


Awaiting the unimaginable

Cocooned in natural, enriching soil

The soil, a guardian.

Full of life and energy, pumped to begin its quest.

By Sioeli


The seed, resting, waiting to be put in soil ….

Comfortable in its new home.

About to come to life …

A new adventure as it bursts out of the soil.

By Mahrukh


Waiting calmly for a new life.

Blanketted in warm soil.

Sleeping and comfortable.

Bursting out furiously – ready for a new life.

By Ebaa


Seeds, seeds, seeds



Seeds are the givers of life – they are like the energy of the whole world!

Did you know that there are more than a million types of seeds in the world?

Seeds are a very important part of life and today in class we studied seeds; we used runner beans and had to draw them and label the parts of the seed. We found the three main parts of the seed: the coat, the embryo (which contains the first leaves, the root, and the stem) and the cotyledon (food).


We also got to sketch a number of other seeds as well – some were tiny, some were flat, one was pink(!) and one was wrinkly.


We watched a video about the “Seed Hunter” – a scientist who is trying to save and store the world’s precious seeds. He puts them safely in a vault in Norway called “the doomsday vault” to keep them safe for future generations.

We saw weird seeds that we had never seen before and wondered about seeds for the first time ever!

  • What would happen without seeds?
  • If seeds can save our very survival on this planet then why do we keep purchasing artificial products?
  • How do seeds help to save the world?
  • Are seeds really “green gold” – are they really so precious and important?


We looked at seeds as a key to genetic diversity on this planet and some of us are quite interested in genetics now.

Who would have thought that seeds could be so interesting???
