Children in veg patch

Case Studies

Janette Bilson and class 4B told us what they have been doing in their school

"We have been turning a patch of grass into a garden. We have harvested strawberries and potatoes already which the children have really enjoyed counting, weighing and eating.


"We sowed some seeds for a wildflower meadow (small scale) and have just been rewarded with a fantastic crop of poppies and cornflowers. They were a little late being sown so they are late flowering but it hasn't put the bees off visiting.

"The sunflower competition has attracted ladybirds and the children got to see a ladybird larvae this week- real life cycle in action. However we couldn't find any eggs- they must have come from somewhere! We will have to keep our eyes open though as we saw ladybirds "kissing" as the children put it!

"The beans are enjoying the recent showers and the tomatoes are waiting for some sunshine to ripen."
