The children are working really well as a team and doing a great job at looking after the garden.

Miss Cridge has sent in our evidence for our level three award.

The children have been awarded their level two School Garden Award and are well on their way to earning level 3.

We are excited as over the next few weeks we can start to sow more seeds.

In our green house we have potatoes chitting, sweetcorn and beans starting to grow.

Our older children are doing a great job with preparing the ground ready to plant out and we have all been learning about how and what to compost.

Today we planted our sweetcorn, we will keep this in the green house until it is warm enough for put outside. 

 

This week the children hung their bird feeders, had a go at digging the soil and added more to the bug hotel.

Preparing the garden

We have had some very wet weather the last couple of week so we decided to have gardening club inside.

We made some bird cakes to feed our Robin friends!

The children enjoyed making them and we had a good discussion about why we need to put bird food out at this time of year.

Bird cakes

Today we made a start on making our Bug Hotel. The children were pleased to have a little Robin come and visit!

The children have some great plans of what they would like to grow this year, we look forward to sharing our updates with you.
