In this summer term, we are trying to tidy up our school grounds. We would love some gardners or handy parents to help! This week we have been trying to make the willow arch into an arch again. It grows so quickly.
This term we are looking into ways to reduce energy consumption. We have had an advisor in to help us understand the importance of not wasting precious energy. If we switch off we will help reduce pollution, reduce emissions and help save our school money. We will try to carry our teaching on by doing the same things at home.
In after school Indoor gardening club we made bird feeders to help the wildlife in our school garden, especially during this cold, snowy weather.
As part of educating the whole school about healthy eating and making choices, we used our own home grown vegetables to make broth. We all had a turn at peeling and preparing the vegetables. We served it to every pupil.
To help everyone think about vegetables and discuss their qualities, we all participated in making a vegetable animal or figure. It was great fun and produced some very inventive results.
As part of being an Eco-School, an after school gardening club meets every week. It is hard work digging, planting, weeding, feeding and harvesting produce. All have lots of fun at the same time as learning. Produce is then used in school for lunches or for taste testing investigations.
