GREAT GARDENING FUN

picture2A lovely start to the year! In September, the whole school had an exquisite time doing gardening and making their playground more attractive and making it a better place for wildlife and insects. The playground is now growing tasty food that everyone can enjoy together.

Every class from nursery to P7 have been given a barrel and planted something in it. Everyone has worked really hard planting it, keeping it nice and will continue to do so. The whole school feel very proud of the playground.

Nursery have planted a Hazel Nut Tree, Saskatoon JB 30 which is a shrubby Canadian blue berry type fruit and viloa cornuta – you can eat the flowers!

Primary 1 have planted yummy Apple Julyred, Victoria Rhubarb and Bloddy Sorrels.

Primary 2 have planted Beauty of Moray apples, Champagne Rhubarb and Roseroot.

Primary 3 have planted Apple Api, Timperely Rhubarb and salad burnet.

Primary 4 have planted Tam Jeffreys which are nice stripey eating apples. They have also planted Strawberry Symphony and annual herbs.

Primary 5 have planted an Ashmead’s Kernel Apple tree, champagne rhubarb and annual herbs.

Primary 6 have planted a Bardsey Apple tree, annual herbs and small sweet Alpine Strawberries.

Lastly, Primary 7 have planted Raspberry Allgold and three wild strawberries.
