Our latest venture is to establish Littlegreen Orchard.
We are very keen to use our grounds effectively and the idea of an orchard started last year. When Keystage 2 set their autumn term project as “Let it Grow” we knew that the moment had arrived.
Every class has planted a fruit tree in the grassy area in the front of the school near to the bee hives. They dug their own holes in the ground and planted their trees. They made their own bespoke labels and then in assembly, tasted some of the fruits that their tress will be producing in the future.
We will be recording how well our trees grow and looking after them over the coming months. We have planted apples, pears, plums and cherries.
