New Year, New Challenges!

Last year we helped a local community group develop a wildlife garden and began work on a wheelchair path to allow access to the school playing field. Building the wheelchair path required pupils to measure the depth and width of the trench needed, dig it out and check levels to make sure the path was not too steep. They then had to fill the path with hard core and firm this down following the required health and safety regulations. This was then topped off with a self-sealing aggregate and firmed down. The next tasks are to put up some rabbit fencing and create a footpath to the playing fields next to the school. We have also been working on the allotment, clearing out the weeds and double digging the whole plot. This has now been covered to prevent weeds growing before we sow our crops. Pupils also cleared the polytunnel and this can be used for breaks in poor weather and sowing seeds next season. At school we planted herbs in the raised beds, unfortunately the rabbits enjoyed these as much as the pupils, and grew some pumpkins for Halloween. In the spring we plan to plant some more trees on the school site and provide additional seating areas for the pupils. 

Thank you Mr John Pearce
