Gardening Club

Gardening Club is run by Mrs Nicholson and Mrs Alves. It runs on a Thursday from 3:15pm to 4:15pm. The aim of the Gardening Club is to introduce the children to growing their own produce and engaging with the nature around them; they are involved in all aspects of vegetable growing from planning, sowing the seeds through to the harvest. Some of the produce has been sold to parents in previous years, children take some home to eat and sometimes the produce is given to the Cookery Club for use in their recipes. This year they used our beetroots in their chutney.

We would like to thank all the people who kindly sent in Morrison school vouchers.  Using the vouchers, last year we received grow bags, seeds, tools and a small apple tree. We are glad to report that the apple tree even successfully produced an apple. We hope to see more apples in the coming years.

With the vouchers that were collected this year more items have been ordered and the club is looking forward to receiving these and putting them to good use in our garden.
