The children in both KS1 and KS2 Gardening Clubs were making great progress in the short number of weeks that we had before the school was closed.

Mr & Mrs Woodman and Mr Birley are visiting the garden to ensure that it's in a good state and productive when we are able to go back to school.

Virtual Gardening Club Episode 6

This installment was recorded on Thursday 28th May, sorry for slight delay in posting due to some technical issues!

In this episode see how plants are progressing and we plant some sweetcorn.



Virtual Gardening Club Episode 5

Now the frosty mornings seem to have passed, we have decided that we will risk putting out some of the more tender plants, like tomatoes, lettuces and runner beans.

The sunny weather in prospect, means plenty of watering will be needed!



Virtual Gardening Club Episode 4

The latest installment including the Key Workers' children doing some planting and pruning!



Virtual Gardening Club Episode 3

Mr Birley has been into school during the week and done some mowing and tidying up. He also watered the plants that we put in last Friday.

In this installment you can seed how some of the seeds that the children planted at the end of March are developing along with some seeds that we have sown since.



Virtual Gardening Club Episode 2

The wet weather through most of the week beginning 27th April made it harder to get gardening done, but we visited school on Monday to dig some ground over and then again on Friday 1st to do some planting and record another video, which you can see below.

Best wishes to all gardeners, young or old!



Here is our first Video Gardening Club



Here are some pictures taken on Wednesday 15th April.

We planted potatoes, onions and shallots. Already coming up are broad beans, peas, parsnips and leeks, planted by the children, plus in the conservatory at home we have lots of lovely seedlings of cabbage, lettuce, tomatoes and marigolds planted in seed trays by the children. We hope to get these into the ground soon, once we are sure the frosts are over.

The apple trees are beginning to come into blossom. Lots of insects and birds are enjoying the quiet around the plot.

We even glimpsed the newt in the pond, though he didn't stay around long enough to be photographed.

We'll keep updating you with progress - nature just keeps on wanting to grow!



The trees around the school are coming into blossom and looking beautiful!
