Gardening after school club

Gardening Club 2015- 2016

Mrs Shaw held a gardening club for the reception children in Autumn 2015 on a Thursday from 3-4pm.

The children planted daffodill and tulip bulbs and heathers in the EYFS garden.

They also made bird feeders to take home and put into the EYFS garden.


We were very busy in the spring gardening club in 2016.

The children planted sunflower seeds to take home for Mother's Day We made bird feeders to take home and also for the early years garden. We planted potatoes and we planted  Nigella Love in the Mist seeds and wildflower seeds to encourage butterflies and bees in the early years garden.


Gardening Club 2016 - 2017

Autumn gardening club

Another busy gardening club has started.

We are planting daffodills, tulips and crocuses. We will also make bird feeders and wind chimes.

The gardening club have made cheerio bird feeders. The children used their fine motor skills to thread the cheerios on to a piece of string. They made enough to hang on trees on the school grounds and to take home for their own garden.

Spring term gardening club

We are working towards a Gold RSPB Wild Challenge award this term in the gardening club. We will help nature by feeding birds and making homes for minibeasts.
