The gardening Club has now moved to a Thursday after school and has been opened to Year 5/6 pupil. Their first week was very busily spent erecting 4 greenhouse structures.
They coped very well with reading flat pack instructions.
Our seed potatoes have just been sown (ready for the Ruxley Garden Centre Competition - we got a Silver Award last year) and bulbs are ready to be planted next week around the lodge.
We have also entered a further competition whereby the children have to do all the work to create the best seed bed - our planting will encourage bees and butterflies to the school grounds.
The whole site desperately needs good quality top soil and compost so if you know anyone that could support the children with this vital hands on learning experience we would love to hear from them.

On Wednesday 26th April the beginner and advanced Recorder groups attended the Thameside Recorder Festival in St George's church. We spent a day rehearsing and then took part in a concert in the evening. A great time was had by all and I was extremely proud of them.
Thank you parents for supporting your children. I know they thoroughly enjoyed the day.
