Back to Nature Club

Friday afternoon is back to nature club and it is so much fun!

July update

May update

We've been collecting up broken twigs and branches to make our own den next to the big sycamore tree - the aim is not to have it fall on our heads. Years 5 and 6 have been filling hessian sacks in preparation for the Anderson-style shelter. We even had a frog come along to give us moral support.

In the raised vegetable beds, we have planted onions, cabbages and cauliflowers along with strawberry plants and raspberry canes - all hoping for a good crop.

The pond is a work in progress but we still have lots of tadpoles swimming around waiting whilst their home is being modernised!

This week we started to plant new hedging to replace the wire fencing.

Gardening Club

It's that time of year again, and the children are all excited to be part of this developing season. They have started tidying up the raised beds and planting a selection of bulbs and seeds. The reflection area looks particularly beautiful with all the vibrant colours.

As well as this, the children have planted some potatoes and there is a bit of a competition to see which sack has the heaviest crop.

20th April 2015

The children had a fantastic time at the first Gardening Club of the summer and have started weeding the raised beds around the shelter.  They even found some bulbs to replant.  As well as this, each child has sown some radishes and re-potted some mint roots.  We cannot wait for everything to start growing!
