Pupil Leadership: Eco-Warriors and Gardening Club
Have you seen our Forest School area recently?
Some of our Eco-Warriors and after school gardening club pupils have been very busy re-developing our Forest School area. So, what have we been up to?
- Rebuilt the bug house to give some of our insect friends a place to hide
- Planted green beans and made a cane wigwam to help grow them up
- Got a compost bin up and running so that we can produce our own compost!
- Prepared a patch ready to grow strawberries in the spring
- Planting flowers to brighten up our beds
- Preparing a patch and sowing wildflower seeds…hopefully we will see these grow next year!
Eric (Year 5) reflected on all the efforts: ‘If we all do our little bit to help, we can change a lot’
Very exciting news
Waitrose Banbury, have kindly donated £500 to the Eco Warriors and Forest School gardening club to regenerate the areas further!
We were so delighted to receive this kind donation, from Emma, on behalf of Waitrose, and know that it will help us greatly to do all the wonderful things that the Eco-Warriors and our Forest School/Gardening Club have planned!
If you have ideas of ways in which we can use this money to make our gardening and forest school area look great, let the Eco-Warriors know! Noah in Year 5 is the lead and is always delighted to chat through any ideas with you!
