Week 1 – adventures have started already!

Thank you to those who have already brought in forest school kits. KS1 pupils will begin outdoor sessions this week (week commencing 11.9.17) and EYFS next week. Already though we have harvested some of our crops – onions, lettuce and peas. We used the lettuce as part of school dinners on Friday and we have plans for the onions (they are just drying out at the moment in KS1 corridor). Thank you so much to Mr Morley for looking after the allotment over the summer holidays and Mrs Robb who looks after the KS1 flower beds and pots around school.

Thank you to those parents who have offered to help at forest school. We are looking forward to moving into the new forest school storage/room and learning outdoors!

We also had a visitor on our school grounds ‘Hog’ the Lever House hedgehog. Miss Roberts took him to a rescue centre and although he was unwell the lady reassured us that she knew how to get him better and he would be released back into the wild soon!
Click on this link to see the great work the hedgehog rescue centre does. It is all voluntary so there is information on the website if you would like to make a contribution.

Gardening at Lever House Allotment

We are working on developing our allotment area here at Lever House. Thank you to some families at Lever House including Mr Morley who has organized the flower beds this year.

With help from some Key Stage 1 pupils, Mr Morley has planted potatoes, onions, chives and stawberry plants.

Over the next few months we are going to look after the plants.

What this space to see our harvest!

Thank you Mr Morley and all our other parent helpers who make outdoor learning at Lever House so enjoyable and beneficial!
