Selling our allotment produce

Thank you to everyone who helped grow this year’s vegetables in the school allotment. We took our produce to a Waitrose store near Altrincham where our eco-buddies used their entrepeneurial skills to sell our allotment vegetables. Thanks to our eco-buddies, Mrs Griffiths, Mrs Temple-Heald and Mrs Cotton, Brookburn Primary raised £65 towards next year’s growing. Let’s hope the weather is kinder to us!

Garden for the Games!

Year 3 and 4 have all had a go at ‘Gardening for the Olympic Games’.

Everybody has designed their own Olympic garden and lots of the children were able to get dirty, planting flowers into old tyres (we like to re-use). The tyres have become the five Olympic rings and carefully selected flowers, that match the colours of the famous rings, were placed into the appropriate tyre.

Mrs Kind’s class started the garden by arranging the tyres and digging.
Mrs Kinch’s class carried on with this task and helped to plant the white strawberries in the ‘green’ ring.
Mrs Cotton’s class filled up some tyres and planted more flowers and finally…
Miss Jopling’s class finished planting the flowers, topped up the soil and watered the garden.

Thank you everyone for a great team effort!

If you would like to see the Olympic garden for yourself, you will find it by the Year 3a, 3b and 4b entrance door, by Mrs Kind’s classroom window.
