What a busy term it has been for gardening! The Year 3 children have been busy in the garden weeding the raised bed and planting their sugar snap pea seedlings. Pepper and aubergine seeds have been germinated and have been growing inside. The children have been learning that the seedlings need warmth and have a long germination time.
Year 3 have also started to build the new bug hotel using recycled pallets, leaves, tubes, bricks, pine cones and anything else that they could find in the woodland area.
Year 5 have sown a wild flower meadow to encourage bees, butterflies and pollinators, and are developing the sensory raised bed.
In Gardening Club, all of the year groups have been working together to replenish the bulbs in the flowering raised beds ready for spring.
As a school, we belong to RHS Campaign for School Gardening and this term we have been very pleased to be awarded our Level 2 certificate for preparing the soil and developing the area for our wildflower meadow.
