The Greenhouse comes alive

Class 5 have been busy looking after the plants in the greenhouse. We have courgettes, turnips, beetroot, tomatoes, peppers, pumpkins and some peas.
Children have been very interested in where the seeds come from in the first place. Some thought they were made in factories and others thought farmers followed birds around to collect them.
We had a good look and the children started spotting the seeds for new plants in the plants they were growing. The broad beans proved very useful for this as they are almost ready to be harvested and will be the first of our produce on sale.
The fruit on the trees is beginning to swell and Class 6 have been brilliant at making sure all the trees are watered adequately for a bumper crop.

Gardening Club started on Friday and they have planted the Spring Cabbage and weeded all the beds.
