Classes are regularly out for Outdoor Learning on the allotment. The log pile gives children the chance to investigate mini beasts. Lots of planting, weeding and harvesting takes place inside the poly tunnel, using the raised beds and with the fruit trees. Children also use the allotment for scavenger hunts, orienteering, and many different maths lessons.
This session, former pupil Cailan Burt has been working towards his Duke of Edinburgh award and has chosen to help us with maintenance of the allotment as his community service section of the award. He and his father have been coming in at weekends to clear and weed the allotment. Because of all their hard work, several classes have already been able to go out this spring and sow crops of beans, peas, Brussel sprouts and potatoes. They continue to work hard every weekend and both staff and pupils are very grateful to them both. Thank you!
