The Infant School gardeners were keen to start up again this term, despite the cold, wet weather that seemed to be lasting forever! The children pulled on their wellies and gardening gloves to get stuck into weeding our raised beds and preparing them for the summer term. Our garlic that was planted in the autumn is coming along nicely and we have planted up our potato planter with some early potatoes which we look forward to harvesting later in the year.
This half term we have all enjoyed the lovely daffodils that previous gardeners have planted in our flower bed. They have really brightened up our outside area and attracted lots of insects. We are starting to see blossom on our apple trees and on the Jubilee tree that was planted in the school grounds last summer. We can’t wait to get back outside in the summer term to plant up our wild flower bed.
