Court Lane Junior Academy

Update from Helen - 20.07.2020

Dear Young Gardeners and their Parents,

It is a pity we have not been able to get together before the end of term, but our safety is more important. I hope you all are well and coping with this unsettling time. 

I have been looking after the school garden at weekends and also with help from Mrs Robinson and keyworker children. We have cared for our beautiful selection of flowers and harvested the broad beans, chard, carrots, potatoes and onions. Plus enjoyed tasting Starflower, chives and mint tea. 

I hope to start the Young Gardeners Club again in September. I will contact the children on the register with details, once they are confirmed with the school. If any children would like to start this club please leave your details at the school office and I will contact you.

I would like to wish Year 6 children good luck in your new school. Some of you have been at Young Gardeners Club, since Year 3 so it will be strange not seeing you each week.

Thank you to everyone who has supported me with this club, the children, parents and helpers. 

I wish you all a happy and healthy summer holiday.

Be safe, take care!

Dear Young Gardeners and Parents.

I hope you all are well. I have been visiting the garden at the weekends and the crops are growing well, but so are the weeds. It's hard work on my own and I do miss my young gardeners helping me. In October the children potted bulbs for Spring. The week after lock down there was a beautiful spring flower display which the children would have loved to see. So I have taken  a few photos for them.

In the Poly tunnel we planted a few crops which are growing. The potatoes, runner beans, broad beans, strawberries, carrots and onions are growing well in the garden.

I will keep you updated and hope to see you before the end of term.

Take care and be safe.
Best wishes
Helen
