Work Hard, Play Fair


We have had a delivery…

We have had another Spring Delivery won in a competition with Rocket Gardens. This included cabbages, green beans, a variety of lettuce leaves, beetroots, carrots, leeks, strawberries and potatoes.

These have all been potted or plants in beds this week by 3 Beech.

The Gardening Gurus have now harvested all the radishes and chives that we have grown and delivered these to the kitchen to be used in school lunches this week.

Spring!

It is Spring! Which means, it’s the time of year in which the Gardening Gurus will be at their busiest.

This week, we planted plenty of seeds including courgettes, aubergines, tomatoes, chives and many more. We are even experimenting by sowing watermelon seeds to see if they like it in our warm Polytunnel.

We are aiming to sell some of our produce and plants in a plant sale later this term and during next term, so please keep your eyes peeled for more information! (Dates to be confirmed)

Week 5 in Gardening Club

We had a slight problem this week when the watering system in the Polytunnel didn’t do it’s job, so we had to work as a team to ensure that all of our current produce was watered. After that, some of the children explored the new grounds around the Theatre and ensured all of the new plants were watered.

Our cabbage and lettuce is beginning to grow, so we have sowed some more seeds in the Polytunnel.

After all of our hard work, the Gardening Gurus had an excellent time collecting conkers! 🙂

Week 4 in Gardening Club

The Gardening Gurus celebrated this Monday as we were awarded our Level One RHS School Gardening Award! This will be awarded in Friday’s Assembly by Mrs Robinson so that we can share our achievements with everyone at school.

Now let’s aim to get Level Two!

Beau and Leila started sowing pansy seeds. The other children helped by watering our currently growing cabbage, lettuce, leeks and butternut squash and of course, looking for worms!
