Summer Term 2017-18

Summer Term

At our first club of the summer term we went to look at our allotments to see which vegetables we are growing this year. We also practised some of our rota duties - watering the plants growing in the polytunnel, feeding the birds and emptying the pencil sharpening to go on the compost heap.
We've sown wildflower seeds in trays which we'll use later in the term to put in our World War memorial garden.
Just like at the Chelsea Flower Show this week, Mrs Schofield helped the Yr6s measure out the plot for creating our memorial garden. We also planted out brussel sprout seedlings, weeded and thinned out lettuce seedlings in our allotments. Autumn did a fantastic job of sorting out all our gardening gloves.
After half term, we began work on our World War memorial garden, planted leeks and planted up some lavender cuttings. We replaced the pebbles in the 'river' in our Water garden and removed huge weeds from our Wildflower Meadow.
We planted pumpkin plants from Bells Nurseries which we hope will grow big enough to enter in their Giant Pumpkin competition in the autumn term. Not long till Boston in Bloom now and we have been very busy working on our memorial garden. We also enjoyed tasting the delicious strawberries from our allotments - yummy!

At our final Eco Club of the summer term we were very busy weeding, watering and feeding the birds. We also bagged up the new potatoes ready to sell to parents at the front of school. What a busy term it's been!
