Garden & Grow Club

Garden and Grow Club is on Tuesday afternoons from 2.15pm.  This year we will be thinking about Plants & Habitats.  We will learn about a new approach (polyculture) that farmers are using to produce food in a changing world and climate. We will plant a variety of flower seeds for insects and bees, improve existing and plan and create new areas for wildlife in our school grounds.


The children will also continue to learn about composting, reducing waste, recycling and reusing.

In the Spring term we did soil experiments, pruned fruit trees, put up bird boxes, created new habitat areas, planted lots of seeds and bulbs, rebuilt the willow tunnels and much more!

Thank you so much to Southwell Garden Centre for giving us lots of shrubs and herbs and also to Holleybeck Nurseries who have given us a bag full of seeds to help us get growing this season.

We are thrilled to have 3 new team members!!

This term we are working with the children on their Living Things and their Habitats enquiry questions; growing lots of organic fruit and vegetables using a companion planting system and  developing the new wildlife area and pond!
