We are pupils from each year group, who love to be active outdoors, whatever the weather. We meet every week and are keen to develop our skills to prepare the soil, sow, plant and water. We are learning basic gardening terms and how to use gardening tools.
Who We Are
What We Do
Under the leadership of Mr Webster and Ms Temple, pupils have developed skills in horticulture, conservation and a variety of outdoor crafts.
Pupils learn about composting – what can and cannot be composted – and how to build and turn a heap to aid decomposition. They are now in charge of collecting worms and waste to add to the compost. Additionally, produce from the school garden is not wasted, but sold to parents or supplies the school kitchen – and with over 480 pupils and staff mouths to feed daily – that’s a big undertaking. So along with the pleasures of growing and nurturing plants and seeds, pupils learn about the business and economic aspects of horticultural production and have learned the ‘value’ of growing things.
Make a Difference
- Pupils will learn to care for their environment with a daily litter duty.
- Build a bug hotel to make our school more wildlife friendly.
- Pupils will decide what they want to grow to eat and will sell surplus crops to parents, to learn about the economic aspects of horticulture.
- Create bird feeders and nesting boxes to encourage birds into the school garden.
- To support and look after bees, who play a vital role in our school ecosystem.
