Bi-weekly gardening club held during lunch at CCB.

Our veggie garden filled to bursting point!

Each year group have a raised bed within the vegetable garden. They keep the same bed year on year to ensure a good understanding of crop rotation and the benefits of good soil preparation and treatment. We also have a herb bed for all to use in the veggie garden. This year we have planted:-

Mixture of lettuces, Dwarf French green beans, Runner beans, Beetroot, Spinach, Mustard, Cabbage selection, Peas, Swiss Chard, Courgettes, Pumpkin, Squash, Sunflowers, Onions, broccoli, Leeks, Carrots, Tomatoes, Rocket, Seed potatoes.

Gardening with the RHS

This Term we are focusing on fruit click here to find out how our orchard is progressing

Perfect for Pollinators

We learnt about pollination, how we need bees to pollinate our fruit crops. We sowed hardy annuals in pots to plant out near our fruit crops.

Strawberry Patch Maths

How many strawberry plants do we need to make a strawberry patch? We measured out our plot, worked out the spacing between each plant and planted up the strawberries.

Travelling food

We posed the question “Where does most of our fruit come from?” We looked at the food miles of fruit grown in the world and compared that to locally grown produce.
