A great start to the gardening season today!  Some of our YR6 children got to learn a variety of new things about particular plants & vegetables, as well as gaining some hands-on experience with either a spade, a rake, or a pair of clippers - great fun was had by all!

At the end of the session, the children were lucky enough to try some homemade french onion soup ........ perfect for an Autumnal afternoon.

Another wonderful session in the Autumn sunshine - such a calm and relaxing afternoon.  This week the children planted seeds, cut back some of the overgrown areas and had a good tidy up.

The 'lite bite' this week was pumpkin soup - simply delicious!!

What a day - sun, rain, sun, rain!  We started the afternoon by having a Q&A session around the topic of harvest. The children then started on a variety of tasks: emptying window boxes, replenishing bark on the pathways, weeding flower beds and potting some plants.

A couple of children followed the 'campfire bread' recipe and prepared some dough for the afternoon snack.  An amazing experience for everybody, as we watched the bread cooking on an open fire - fantastic!

It is safe say that it rained today - my goodness it didn't stop! Lucky for our YR6 children we got to spend a lovely afternoon in the comfort of the polytunnel.  Today the children got to take part in an apple tasting session, then they rolled their sleeves up and got stuck in to a multitude of jobs that needed tackling: 

- Planting bulbs
- Trimming the grape vine
- Using Hogweed to make more rooms for the bug hotel
- Turning raised beds over

Another beautiful afternoon of teamwork and fun, whilst learning some new life skills!
