Improving the school grounds to increase wildlife visitors in the cold winter months.
Y6 have been tending the school gardens in the dry weather and preparing the raised beds for our next round of planting (when we no longer have frosty nights). Jobs to do: water the strawberries and rhubarb, harvest last season's onions and start the weeding.
Each class has been given a tomato plant to take care of and nurture. We want everyone to be responsible for looking after a plant and to know how easy it is to grow delicious food in all sorts of spaces. There has been a serious amount of competitive behaviour breaking out and some creative naming across the school. We are hoping to have some fantastic plants to use in our exhibit for the Chorley Flower Show later in the year.
Thank you to all our families and staff who volunteered to take the plants home for the May half-term holiday. The plants all returned looking bushy and healthy after their stay-cations.
