Green Fingered Reception

early years

During the springtime months, Crosfields girls and boys in Reception have been working hard in the School's polytunnel which contains planters of vegetables and flowers. 

Before Easter, they planted potatoes, pumpkins, purple sprouting broccoli, lettuce, tomatoes, Brussel sprouts, chard, dwarf French beans, marigolds, beetroots and courgettes.  When they returned after the Easter break, they were thrilled to see the fruits of their labour and enjoyed harvesting the lettuce and tasting it.

They also supplied the kitchen with lettuces which were served on the salad bar for lunch and enjoyed by the whole school!  Many thanks to Mrs. Jenkins for her enthusiasm and hard work in getting the polytunnel up and running.
