We are so grateful to THACS and the Tewin community for providing us with our very own allotment.
Children in Year 4 visit the allotment once a week to learn how to plant and care for vegetables, herbs and flowers.
In year 4, we have been visiting the allotment weekly on a Wednesday afternoon. Since coming back to school in September, we have had been able to harvest a few vegetables but our main aim has been to prepare the ground ready for the Spring.
To prepare the ground, we have been using our tools gifted to us by THACS to weed the plot. We have learnt how to use our tools safely and effectively, and how to weed our plot efficiently.
Already we have started thinking about what we would like to plant ready for next year. We have learnt so much along the way about the seasons and what sorts of fruits, vegetables and flowers we can and can't plant on our plot.
Thank you so much to all involved in supporting us in our 'allotment antics'! So much goes on behind the scenes while we are unable to tend our plot which is much appreciated.
