Garden Project

Our overall plan is to plant the garden so that it is growing all year round giving us seasonal vegetables for our cooking within the school and helping us in this area in science.  In order to do this we would like small groups of children to be going out once a week.  This will be from classes across the school, involving every child in the planting process.

It would be brilliant if we could get the garden growing and producing food we can eat and will be invaluable for teaching the children about seasonal foods as well as how to garden. We plan to do this on a Monday afternoon, so if you would like to help please see either Mrs Williams or Mrs Archer.

 

 

 

Friday 21st September was the first grounds day of the new school year.  A lot of the dads carried on where they left off with the greenhouse!  The rest of us took to weeding the beds, not an easy job, and painting them!  A few rain showers came and went but didn't put people off.

 

         

 

 

 

 

 

It was the 3rd instalment of our grounds day.  We had a great turn out from parents and children, with quite a few new faces as well as old ones who had turned up to finish where they left off last time!  It took the whole day, but the greenhouse was finally put together and is now standing waiting for some glass!  The class beds were weeded and are now clear ready for some new plants to go in when the spring comes.  Extra parts of the sensory path have been completed and with only a few more bots to do it should all be done by the end of our next grounds day.

       

   

 

 

On a damp, windy day in March work began on developing the our garden area.  With the help of some willing parents and children we completed many jobs.  The greenhouse shell was put together, but due to the wind we couldn't put any glass in it, a job for next time!

 

 

A windy path through part of the garden area was dug, and a brick edging was layed.  The path has been spilt into different sections, with different materials filling each part.

 

 

 

 

We managed to find space for our fabulous totem pole that was designed for us.
