Gardening Club

This week in gardening club the children noticed that some of the things that they had planted had started to grow fruit or vegetables. The children were even able to harvest and eat some radishes! After that the children went pond dipping and managed to find a goldfish that nobody knew was even in the pond. What a great surprise!

Gardening Club - April 2015

Gardening Club got off to a great start.  The sun was shining and the children had a fantastic time planting a variety of seeds, emptying the Ridan food composter, (all their fruit waste), and transferring it to the hotbox to decompose into lovely compost for the garden and they even had time for pond dipping.

Gardening Club take their teddies exploring!

Gardening club had a few extra members today... our teddies!  We took our teddies on an exploration of the school grounds and garden and used them to collect seeds.  Then we shook our teddies to get all of the seeds out so that we could use them to make more seeds bombs  We discovered that the fluffy teddies collected the most seeds.  We then celebrated all our hard work in gardening club over the last few weeks by having a teddy bears picnic.

Gardening Club

Gardening Club have been working extremely hard over the last few weeks.  They have been busy planting and caring for vegetables in the raised beds, maintaining our wild flower area and using the seeds collected last year to make wild flower seed bombs, weeding, making a new bug house, emptying the composter and of course pond dipping.  We were amazed at just how healthy our pond is.  We found 22 newts and 65 froglets as well as lots of other pond creatures.

Fabulous Recycled Bottle Greenhouse

After months of saving plastic bottles, a morning spent cleaning the bottles, cutting off the bottoms and threading them onto canes our greenhouse was ready for construction.  Mr Hutchinson very kindly volunteered his time and skills to complete the project for us.  And what spectacular result!  Gardening Club can't wait to use it!

Kitchen Garden

Class One have once again participated in a growing competition sponsored by Fermoy's Garden Centre.  The brief this year was to grow food in recycled containers.  Class One decided to go along the theme of planting herbs so we called our exhibit 'Kitchen Garden'.   The children even made a welsh dresser complete with bunting to display their crops on.  Unfortunately the weather has prevented some of our crops from growing as well as we hoped but the children all had fun!  The exhibit is on display at the Devon County Show along with some other imag
