Summer Fun

Posted by Mrs S. Brennan on June 8th, 2014

We have been working with Mr. Ashton from the Wildlife Trust.  We have been planting fruit and vegetables and have already been able to harvest some salad leaves and strawberries.  Last week we made dens for the insects and animals that Mr. Ashton brought into school.  It was great fun.

The Blue Class garden is looking very pretty at the moment with lots of sweet peas and marigolds. They have to remember to pick the sweet peas to encourage more flowers to come.DSCN1404

Purple Class find lots of things in the garden

Posted by Mr Ashton on July 4th, 2013

Purple Class had a very enjoyable day in the garden yesterday. We spent some time looking around the garden to see what we could find living in the garden habitat. Our first find was a very long earthworm which we managed to have a closer look at.

We also found Cuckoo Spit – the home to froghoppers and very large snail and a weevil. Purple class helped out by doing some weeding and also we harvested a giant cabbage.

The peas and marigolds are growing
