As the weather was so damp gardening club took place in Woodpeckers classroom (they were out for the day). Mandy and her helpers managed to support a number of children to re-pot  bulbs. But shhhhhh is’e a surprise.

Gardening club plea.

This is a message from Mandy one of our lovely mums who runs this amazing club. She brings energy and enthusiasm on a Tuesday lunch time to inspire our budding horticulturists.

She meets in reception at 11.30 on a Tuesday and is often here till just after 1.30. Adele  and Carol are often there too as support. It has become popular with our children so any other parents/grandparents who would like to volunteer could you please contact the school via your child’s home/school book. Help is most required between 12.30-1.30 when the children come out to plant.

This week the juniors planted bulbs in the woodland area. Those chairs are going to look awesome.

February – chairs, daffs, beetroot and wild flowers

DSCN6190 DSCN6191 DSCN6192 DSCN6193 DSCN6194 DSCN6196 DSCN6197 DSCN6198 DSCN6199 DSCN6200 DSCN6202DSCN6188 DSCN6186 DSCN6184DSCN6180    DSCN6182Picture1 DSCF5901 DSCF5897

The infants planted some green beans, some of them dug over and planted some wild flower seed in the borders. Carol donated a bird feeder in the centre of the higher raised bed. They also planted some grass seed into the arms of the armchair which was planted last week.

Juniors did a very good job of separating the beetroot which had grown well from last year and needed dividing and replanting. Then they planted some great chairs with daffodils and then chose where to put their creations in the woodland area.

Thank you to Mandy Stretch, Sarah Sibbald, Adele Smith & Carol Fulflood who are the amazing ladies who run this very popular lunch time club.
