We are very excited to have a poly tunnel for school! One of our parents has donated it to us after she did not use it in her allotment. We are thrilled, of course!!
We thought a lot about where best to put it. We decided that a corner by Mrs Lawrence’s class would be the perfect place as it gets the morning sun and is nice and close to our Grow Zone beds.
The Green Team measured the area to make sure it would fit in the space. We then put up the metal frame so we could double check it would fit properly. It was fine!
The area is covered in ivy and it took a while to clear it all. We decided we would have a path up the middle, so WildlifeKate has cleared to area and put buttons on each side. There is a large bush that needs to be dug out before we can finish the path.
We are then going to make some benches out of pallets that we have in school. We will then be able to plant some seeds and give them a head start before we plant them in our Grow Zone beds. Watch this space!!!
