Green Saturday

 

Green Saturday
 
In keeping with our eco-school ethos, we have redesigned our courtyard area in key stage 2 to make it much greener. The construction is now complete with many more areas available for plants and trees, and this is where we need your help.
 
Autumn is the ideal time to put new plants into the ground or to divide big plants and transplant them. We need donations of plants and shrubs to bring our project to life.
 
I have included a list of suggested plants which would attract wildlife, as well as appealing to the children’s senses of sight, smell and touch, but we would welcome any plants, shrubs or bulbs you are able to donate.
 
We would also like to invite you to our Green Saturday event from 10 until 2 on Saturday 17th October. Come and see the new courtyard for yourselves and help us do some planting.
 
All family members and friends are welcome. We look forward to seeing you there.
