Outdoor Learning Environment
At Carr Junior we have a range of areas in the school grounds where we have the opportunity to grow our own fruit and vegetables. Each week, when the weather is in our favour, our gardening volunteer works with groups of children to maintain and develop these areas. We currently have a range of fruit trees and allotment beds. The produce from these are used in our school kitchen or in recipes for our annual Harvest show.
The Gardening Gang are always busy, these are just some of the things that have happened in school in the last year:
- Harvest Show
- Allotment beds - set up with families of plants that grow well together.
- Bloom Wheelbarrow competition - We Won!
- Tree planting - to promote wildlife and our woodland area in the future.
Here is our wheelbarrow for the Bloom Wheelbarrow competition. It was based around reading and all of the components were made from recycled materials.
