Garden Gang back in action

Tonight saw the first meeting of the ‘Garden Gang’ in the second half of the Autumn term.  The children worked hard for their hour raking the huge volume of leaves that have fallen and planting willow cuttings.  We took cuttings from the healthy side of the willow classroom and planted them at the base of read more »
