Year 2 have had a fantastic afternoon in our school garden looking for living organisms and their habitats. The children were able to find lots and took great care to make sure they did not disturb the habitat.
Well done year 2!
The glorious weather allowed us to plant out our first batch of onions in beautiful sunshine.
We turned the soil, pulled out weeds and prepared the soil for planting. We then planted our onion bulbs in straight rows, 15cm apart and gave them a good watering.
After that we sowed some very small lettuce and carrot seeds. We also sowed these in straight lines, covered them with soil and gave them a good water. Hopefully, we’ll see them coming through in the next 3 weeks.
Because the weather is changing and there isn’t as much food around for our feathered friends, we decided to try and make some tasty bird food.
We tried to make two different foods. The first one, we made using Cheerios and garden string. Did you know that birds love Cheerios?
The second food involved us mixing some packet bird food with porridge oats and lard. It felt really horrible and slimy, but it was worth it. We made the mixture cling to the string in sausage shapes and hung it from the trees in our nature garden.
I hope the birds in our garden enjoy their winter feast.
