This school year 2020 and 2021 Eco committee and Gardening club will be joining together to develop a large wildlife area on the school Field. today 26th November some very keen children wheeled an oak hedgehog box (made by Mr Barber for the Children.) to the other end of the school field where its quiet and the bottom of the fence could allow wildlife through. After, the children selected the perfect place the made sure the leaves were just right to keep a hedgehog warm.
Next job was to spread some wild flower seeds onto the wild life area. so they could settle and be ready to germinate in the spring.
Lastly we have two new bird boxes to put up ready for spring.
In the last committee meeting Hayden thought we needed more lavender around the school so, he was in-charge of planting it so when it grows the playground will be full of the scent. February 2020
We take pride in our school and we encourage everyone to keep it clean, tidy and energy efficient.
