As guardians of Corinne's Meadow we have been getting to know what we have growing in our meadow and learning to recognise many of the wonderful wild plants such as the wild carrot, which you can now see going to seed. Their seed heads look like mini birds’ nests and you will often find a little ladybird or earwig resting inside.
At Thomas Jolyffe we are very lucky to be surrounded by such beautiful trees, which we have been learning to identify. As we move through the seasons we will be busy with lots of gardening projects and continue to observe and cherish the wild places we have at our school.
If there are any parent ecologists, nature enthusiasts or gardeners who would like to get involved in any way please contact the office.
We received some excellent news over the summer telling us that our Wild Flower Garden Project bid with Tesco was successful, and that we have been awarded £3,500!
A big thank you to Katie Beswick for her hard work.
Over the next few weeks we will be deciding how best to use the funds.
If anyone has any snowdrops in their garden that they can spare, our gardeners at school would be really grateful if you could donate some to us. If you have any then please dig them up and bring them to the school office. Thank you.
