Hopefully the summer will be as kind to us as last year and that you all enjoy being out and about in the great outdoors.
Sad to say farewell to the hardworking long standing members of R Green Gang.
Thank you for all your enthusiasm and contributions over the years in helping to achieve everything we did. Could not have done it without you.
The Green Gym with Jules & Co will be doing Thursdays and Saturdays, 10-1, if you (with an adult) want to pop along to the plot. Take a drink and a snack with you.
The School Council will be taking over everything Eco School so stay involved Gang - you have lots of amazing ideas!
Unsure what will be happening with clubs next term but I will not be doing a gardening one in September. Do have an idea of what I'd like to do but it all depends.....
Thank you again to any Green Gang, family helpers and summer plotterers that have been involved over the years - you are all fantastic
Have a lovely summer
See you about next term
Spotted - green woodpecker flying across playing field to R Woods!
It has been a strange and unusual time. And a summer with no plotterers will also be very odd. Hope you are pottering outdoors at home when you can.
Stay safe everyone.
Do what baked potato says.....!
"R Green Gang"
We will be outside every Monday 3.10-4.00 pm, as soon as restrictions allow.....
We incorporate eco/environmental aspects also - we are going to continue with our Polli:Nation School aims ..............SH
The pinks have really popped now!! And the bees are loving the chives but are as anti-photo as I am LOL
Hope you are all well....and being kind to each other
My chilli seeds still only have two leaves but I shall persevere
Not sure what I think of the garlic chives.....Hope you had some success with yours, those of you that didn't replant (drop) yours in the reading area...
We have some vivid orange flowers but I'm not sure if they are the zinnia or calendula - have misplaced pictures!
The peas are nearly ready to plant.
The broad beans had a bit of a blip, normally it is pigeons that peck things out but I saw the guilty culprits in action..... the chickens. Who don't know the difference between the weeds and the plants!! The other beans are still making their minds up. Will wait and see. Take care
Guess which school won the heaviest sunflower head competition......click on the file below
Looks a bit wonky
Not sure whether that was me or the shield.............!! SH
June 1st 2020
Poppies are popping up, as are some ox eye daisies.....
Nick Packham from the organisation "Buglife" came to help enhance our "outdoor classroom".
R Green Gang had to work very hard (and very quickly - darkness was fast approaching) to rake and scrape the area so we could sow some wildflower seeds. Some were sprinkled on the prepared patches. Then there was the scatter sow - which was fun......
My favourite bit was the penguin shuffle to firm the seeds into the ground.
Fingers crossed the birds don't find all the seeds and that we have a mini meadow in the spring and summer..... SH
