Week 23 18/10/2016

This week was a very muddy week as we had a lot of rain over the October Holidays. Today we took out our finished plants, the courgettes and sweet peas and planted some red onion and garlic sets, which will be ready to harvest late spring.

We also worked on our wildlife garden, moving the bark so we could take out the black plastic sheeting from underneath and then digging the bark in to try and improve our very poor clay soil. The children worked really hard shovelling and digging and were in high spirits singing as they worked.

The children used some of the clay to make clay animals.

And we also painted our bat boxes ready for Wild about Gardens Week next week.
