This week, with everything growing so well in our Grow Zone,  we want to make sure that the birds don’t come and wreck our crops! I set some groups the challenge of making a scarecrow out of recycled materials. Using a range of old mops , wood, old clothes, string etc, we designed our own scarecrows and built them. The Year 3 classes also made a selection of them.

Here are the Year 3 scarecrows that have made their home in the beds….
