Autumn 1 2022 – Gardening Club at the Infant School

Gardening Club has spent lots of time weeding and tidying up the raised beds this Autumn with the help of Mrs Reeve. Over the past 7 weeks we have admired the last of our sunflowers, harvested our squashes, and planted some winter pansies to brighten up the empty vegetable beds. The next task was to pick the apples and pears in our growing orchard area. There was lots of fruit and the trees seem very well despite the hot summer we have had! 

To finish gardening club for 2022 we planted garlic (which are already starting to grow) and added more spring bulbs. The children have worked so hard this half term and have enjoyed watching our little garden area change week on week.

Time for a rest before the Spring time is upon us once again!

Summer 2 2022 – Infant School Gardening Club

The last few weeks of term have been a busy time for the Infant Gardening Club. We have been planting out lots of summer flowers, tending to the watering and weeding on a weekly basis, and watching our runner beans, onions, potatoes and garlic grow!

As we were coming to the end of the school year, we were very excited to see that our early potatoes were ready to harvest along with the onions and garlic. The children carefully gathered everything in and divided it up. Once again, a big thank you goes out to Mrs Reeve who comes into school each week as volunteer to help us and give us gardening advice. We also awarded a ‘Top Gardener of the Year’ certificate for amazing dedication and hard work to the school gardens.
