Our current gardening projects
This term we need to get planting. We intend to plant potatoes, radishes, carrots and lettuce. We will then need to cover the ground with sticks to prevent small animals digging them up. We will also need to keep the area well-watered and dig up weeds.
Broad Beans that we planted earlier this year
Our meadow garden
Our long grass has just been cut so we have racked away all the cuttings. This is important as it allows the new grass to grow. It is important to keep some of the grass long to provide habitats for animals.
Our school pond
We are lucky to have a school pond which is home to lots of animals. This term we will pull out lots of the weed and clean it so we can study the animals that live there.
Our other projects
This term we are promoting ways to save water and energy around the school. We are busy researching how to save water and energy and we are making posters to display in classrooms.
