Mr Jane runs a gardening club on a Tuesday from 1500-1600.
The club is open for children from KS2 (Y3-6)
We are developing the school allotment into a new learning environment and helping children build the life-long skills of working with tools, teamwork and respect for the environment.
Please ask at the office for a letter if your child would like to join.
- tool safety
- preparing soil
- planting and sowing
- understanding and knowledge of plants and wildlife
Today we planted strawberry plants that were kindly donated to the group. We also had to keep on top of the watering as the temperature heats up.
This week we have been actively watering our plants in the late spring heat - hoping that they will survive the weekend! We have also sown pea, radish and lettuce seeds in our second bed.
This week we cleared one bed of all weeds and planted the raspberry plants that Mr Jane donated from his garden.
We have begun weeding the first two beds at the top of the allotment in preparation for some new fruit and veg plants. The allotment was very over-grown - but we enjoy a challenge!
