OCTOBER 2020 - This year, we are focusing on increasing the amount of insects in the soil around our school. Insects are an important part of keeping our gardens healthy. Minibeasts will use our bug hotel as a safe space to shelter, lay their eggs, raise their young, and seek refuge from predators.
Our junior school has started work on making a bug hotel. Each class has gathered leaves, twigs, stones, cardboard, pieces of wood, pipes, flower pots and branches. We also sourced pallets as the base for our hotel. We are looking forward to seeing and monitoring what kinds of insects our bug hotel will attract over the next few months and of course, we cant wait to read the reviews from our hotel guests!
OCTOBER 2020 - Third class learnt about what plants need to grow and then planted their own flowers in good compost. We've found them a nice sunny spot and are watering them regularly.
SEPTEMBER 2020 - Potatoes planted and growing in our tyres in Senior School. Lovely wild flowers.
Third class are learning about the importance of trees on our
planet. We learnt that there are two types of trees; deciduous and evergreen.
We went on a tree field trip around the school looking for different types of
trees and gathering their leaves. Back in class we made colourful prints of the
different types of leaves that we found. See photo gallery for more
