Growing Alley


Here are some photos of the our School Polytunnel and growing alley.  The children have put environmental pledges and their own scarecrows.


Harvesting our crops

Pupils from different year groups have been sampling our own grown crops.  They have tried peas, beans, potatoes, tomatoes, onions, lettuce, apples, pears and beetroots.Ellen has been cooking the beetroots for different classes and she has had mixed reviews, but we have managed to inspire some pupils in trying the beetroot at lunchtimes from our healthy salad bar. Year 3 are cooking some of our apples next week.
