Red Cross Garden

Year 1 visited the Red Cross Garden for a planting and gardening experience. We had a wonderful time! A volunteer from Bankside Open Spaces Trust helped us learn all about planting. We learnt to propagate Spider plants and planted Marigold and Nasturtium seeds too. The children reminded each other about what plants need to grow, then they took their plants home. Hopefully you will see them grow over the next few weeks! Year 2 will also enjoy this opportunity too!
