In Modern World Horticulture we have been busy preparing the allotment for winter and starting to look ahead to spring.

We have cleared the greenhouse for tomatoes and refreshed our growing beds. They have been filled with a range of winter salads, a prize from the RSH for achieving level 3 in the Campaign for School Gardening Awards. Outside we have planted spring lettuces, greens, cabbages and turnips.

We have also been developing our range of growing options by beginning construction of a poly-tunnel and continuing the clearance around our outdoor learning area.

The chickens have been well cared for during our lessons, getting lots to eat from our tidying up and in our attempts to hand feed them!
