Getting ready for spring

This week we had lots of little jobs to do in order to get our garden ready for the spring. The first job was to start planting out some seeds into trays for our meadow. We will be putting some seeds straight into the ground, but have been advised that it’s best to give some a head start by planting them in trays first.

We were particularly excited today as Mrs Kedwards treated us to some new gardening kit, including spades, forks and gloves. Everyone felt it was very important to coordinate the tools with the gloves. Thanks Mrs K!

Finally we needed to start potting some conifers for our reading area. We also added a lavender plant to the pot so it would smell nice as well as look good. This was an idea the school council came up with so that we could have a quiet area of the playground sectioned off where children can sit and read.
