Year 3 have enjoyed their first gardening afternoon.
After a break from gardening during the winter we returned to find the vegetable beds covered in pesky weeds. First job of the afternoon was to begin to tackle this problem. With a group of children from Class 6 on the case we have made a start.
Another group of children became chefs for the afternoon. They harvested some of the rhubarb grown in the garden to make a delicious rhubarb crumble. They washed, chopped and mixed the various ingredients. The children then served small portions to the rest of the class. There was a mixture of opinions on the taste of the rhubarb although the majority of children enjoyed the crumble topping.
The last group of children made a delicious feast for our local birds. They hung their completed bird feeders in the trees around the school field.
