The enormous pumpkin

The enormous pumpkin was finally cut open today. Kim and a group of year six made delicious soup and an incredible pumpkin cake (everyone said so). The local parishioners and some parents came to have a taste. Thanks Kim.

Tidy up time!

Year 5 did a fantastic job of clearing a corner of the garden. They uprooted weeds and nettles before laying mypex to cover the ground.

Orchard Planting Day

Today London Orchard Project came and helped us plant seven fruit trees in the garden. We learnt how and why we should  dig a square hole. We dipped the roots in mycorrhizal funghi to help the tree grow well. Mulch mats will help protect the tree from being attacked by too many weeds. Wood chip will help feed the tree as it grows. We learnt so much. Thankyou London Orchard Project.
