Environment Club

Our environment club meets weekly and consists of approximately 10 children from KS2, led by Miss Milford.
Our aim is to learn about growing plants and caring for the local environment.
Recent projects have included erecting a bird house and table in the Science garden (the table was kindly made for us by the grandfather of Becky Cox in Year 6).
This enabled us to feed the birds around the school.
We have spent time weeding in the Nursery garden for the younger children to study plants as part of the curriculum.
An exciting and challenging project planned for the future is to plant a variety of flowers in the shape of the Union Jack to celebrate the Queen's forthcoming jubilee.
The pictures show a group of Year 4 pupils and our two Year 6 helpers weeding the nursery area.
