Allotment Activity!

After a wet summer the allotment was very overgrown and unsafe for pupils. Luckily, lots of fantastic parent helpers and some staff turned out on the two allotted Monday afternoons to clear all the beds and the poly tunnel. Thank you everyone.

A pupil allotment task force has also been formed. These pupils give up their Thursday lunch time to maintain the allotment, clearing up grass cutting and rotten apples, weeding the poly tunnel and digging. They have even been introduced to the compost heap!

Classes have been out to the allotment to pick apples and some have even used these for art. Potatoes have been dug up and a lot of these have been used by the nursery.

Once again, the sunflowers are spectacular. Let’s hope they last until the Harvest Assembly. Right now, we also have beautiful cornflowers blooming too.

Parents have been very kind handing in cuttings and these are being planted in the raised beds as they arrive. Unfortunately, one of our raised beds is now unsafe, and will need to be demolished. Volunteers to help with this will be needed soon. Watch this space!
