Look how our school garden has developed. 
The Gardening Area was set up in 2010 to provide an opportunity for all pupils to engage in planting and growing and to add a practical element to our World Around Us work on living things and their habitats. 
Finance from the extended schools programme got the project up and running and since that time each class has experienced growing a range of vegetables, herbs and flowers. Each class has its own planting box. 
In addition to the planters there are areas for planting flowers, bird boxes, an insect log pile and a wild flower area. 
Children in the Foundation Stage witnessed the lifecycle of the butterfly close up after collecting caterpillars from the school garden. The caterpillars were put into a butterfly net and fed on flowers from the garden before the children saw them change into their pupa state. They remained like this until late spring when the children watched with great excitment as they transformed into beautiful butterflies which the children released back into the garden.
