Gardening

Gardening Club is available to children in KS1 and KS2 and is run by our fantastic gardener Emma, who works for Global Generation, an educational charity that work with local children to create healthy, integrated and environmentally responsible communities.

The club provides an opportunity for children to learn about growing plants, recycling and wildlife.  We grow most of our plants from seed allowing children to experience the life cycle of a plant first hand. Our edible garden is organised in to sections and we grow a variety of fruit, vegetables and flowers. The children have fun doing all sorts of activities from planting seeds, weeding, finding mini-beasts, planting out seedlings and watering the garden. They particularly look forward to the harvest party when they get to eat their hard work!
