Eco Club

Allotment

The children have made good use of the allotment over the winter and planted broad beans, cabbages, cauliflowers, purple sprouting broccoli and leeks. These are growing nicely and will soon be ready for harvesting. In addition this, the eco club have sewn a wide variety of seeds. Runner beans, peas, tomatoes, potatoes and sweetcorn are examples.

Meadow Patch

As part of a bio diversity project, the eco club have sectioned off a large area of grass on the back field that will be allowed to keep growing. The children are looking forward to investigating different grasses and plants growing in their natural environment.

Bird Boxes

Just before half-term, the eco club visited Meadow Bank Farm at Broxton where, under the guidance and supervision of Keith Siddorn, the children used a variety of tools to make their own wooden bird boxes. Keith made us all very welcome and taught the children about the important features of choosing an ideal location for their nesting boxes.
