Earlier this year we were lucky enough to have an edible garden put in to our existing playground by the charity trees for cities. We now have 12 flower beds and a greenhouse that we can plant in!
Since April all classes from Nursery to Year 6 have been working with our gardener Holly to plant fruits and vegetables that where specially chosen by the school council to be put into our garden . They have been busy planting all sorts of exciting things from potatoes, to peas to strawberries!
Each week the children have been learning not only how to plant seeds and bulbs but also how to look after them. They have been making sure the plants have enough water and that all the weeds are being taken out.
Soon we will be ready to harvest our first crop of fruits and vegetables. Please take your child and have a walk in our new garden, they will be able to tell you more about all the lovely things they have been doing!
