Over the next few weeks, we are supporting our school catering team with the ‘Big Grow initiative’. This starts on the 9th May and runs until the 20th May. Throughout the fortnight, they will serve a different guest salad bar dish each day.
There will also be some virtual events for classes to participate in as well the opportunity for classes to plant seed and grow salad ingredients.
Keeping on the theme of gardening. Next week is ‘National Gardening Week’ and to help promote this week and the wellbeing that outdoors and nature provides we held a Wear it Green Day on Friday 6th May. This was also the same day as our usual Feel Good Friday, So on this day children came to school wearing green or garden inspired clothes for a donation of £1, which will go towards planting around the school environment and class planting activities.
National Gardening week are also running a competition to win funding worth £700 as well as vouchers for school garden development. In order to be in with a chance of wining schools need to grow as many grass caterpillars as they can. The caterpillars must be decorated, at least 15cm long and must have sprouted grass. School can provide grass seed, but we will require each class to collect enough pairs of tights to enable the making of the caterpillars. Alternatively, you can make your caterpillar at home and then bring it to school to enter in the competition.
Good luck Park Street! So fantastic to work as a team in an attempt to win the funding! Go for it and let's make our environment the best it can be!
Thank you for organising Mrs Watson and Mrs Stevens!
