Gardening Club

Tuesday 3.15pm-4.00pm (with Miss Short and Mrs Porter)



Our carrots, spring onions and strawberries are growing well. We hope to taste some strawberries and cream by the end of the school year. 

We were very excited to try our home-grown lettuce today!


Update: Our beetroot, lettuce, carrots, strawberries, sunflowers and herbs are growing really well.


We finished painting the rest of the old car tyres. When these dry we plan to plant herbs and flowers in them. We also checked on and watered our plants. We were very excited that our sunflower seeds had started to grow.


In Gardening Club the children filled a home-made raised bed with 375 litres of compost.

They then sowed carrot, tomato and spring onion seeds; some in the raised bed and some in pots.


This week at Gardening Club each child decorated a plant pot before planting a sunflower seed. We made sure we watered our strawberry plants that we planted last week. We all had a little trip to our Gardening 'patch' which we will start using from next week.


The rain didn't dampen our spirits at the first ever week of Gardening Club; we sheltered in our outdoor, undercover area. The children took turns planting strawberry plants. We spoke about what the plants would need to survive and grow.

The children also took turns at painting an old car tyre with bright green paint. When it is dry we are going to place it in our gardening patch and grow herbs in it.
