Susan and  6th Class are very busy transforming our school garden!


The Children are very busy tending to our School Garden. There is a great sense of excitement around as the seeds and bulbs we planted a few weeks ago have sprouted. Our onions, peas, garlic, lettuce and beetroot are doing very well despite the very wet weather during the month of May.

The children are also growing tomatoes which have to be brought indoors at night to protect them from the cold.

They are also looking after our little orchard which consists of Apple and Pear trees, by feeding them in the hope that there will be a bumper crop in the autumn, when the school re-opens after the summer break.

As we are a “Green School”, we make our own food for our plants by soaking nettles in water for approximately two weeks.

We are watching over our Bio-Diversity Garden anticipating the arrival of lots of Wildlife. There are lots of flowers planted for this purpose such as Buddleia (the Butterfly Bush), lavender, calendulas, honeysuckle, campanulas and many more.

We are all looking forward to being rewarded soon with the strawberries becoming ripe before the summer holidays (fingers crossed)!!!

We would like to say a big thank you to Peter, our Caretaker,” who is a great help to us in our garden.
