Court Lane Junior Academy

Update from Mrs Beer - 01.04.2021

Year 4 children planted many spring bulbs, onions, garlic and broad beans in Autumn. Their efforts have been successful with beautiful pots of daffodils, tulips, muscari and the broad beans are growing well too. Year 4 class planters are also looking delightful. 

Victory Class have also been learning about potatoes and enjoyed our 'Spud Week' when they planted 30 Pentland Javelin early potatoes. These will be harvested the last week of term. 

I hope Young Gardeners Club will return when Covid restrictions are lifted. I will contact children on the register first and then offer places out to those who are on the waiting list. If your child would like to attend please write their name and class on a piece of paper address to Mrs Beer and leave in the office. I will add their name onto the waiting list.

In the mean time I will be keeping on top of the gardening with my class helpers.

Enjoy the Springtime when the birds sing, the weather is warmer and new flowers start to appear.

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
