The Anchor News - 12th May 2017

12th May 2017

Welcome to this week’s newsletter, and what a busy week we have had. School has been a hive of activity with SATs, more of that from Mrs Harris, and other things going on. With the sun shining it has turned our attention to growing.


Lots of our topics in school involve planting and growing and now is the ideal time to begin sowing things. You don’t need a large space to grow things, you don’t even need an outdoor space! Most herbs can be grown in window boxes inside as well as small fruit and vegetables such radishes, onions, lettuces and alpine strawberries.


Nursey have just harvested their first crop of radishes and all who tasted them agreed they were very tasty indeed. We will be creating a community garden at James Housing where we will be helping them to grow fruit and vegetables in their vegetable patch.


If you would like to start growing your own fruit or vegetables and have any questions please come and speak to me.
