Archbishop Cranmer CofE Primary Academy Striving for life in all its fullness. John 10: 10

Plot 2 Pot

 

Autumn Term 2018 - P2P is back!

After a long, hot, dry summer it is time we got back in to the garden to see what has survived and what couldn't take the drought.  Despite a very poor growing season throughout Spring, we managed to put together a delicious Summer Garden Party with such tasty treats as raspberry jam, gooseberry fool and fresh juicy salad: lets hope all is not lost!

 

Everyone from Year 1 to Year 6 is welcome to come along on Thursday from 3.30 to 4.30pm.  All you need is a pair of wellies and lots of enthusiasm.  Sometimes we will work on the planting boxes, sometimes we will be clearing up the school environment, sometimes we will be cooking our own produce, but we will always have fun in the fresh air and be improving our local environment, the biodiversity of the school grounds and learning about where food comes from.

 

Parents, if you have any gardening or cooking expertise, or just enthusiasm, and could help Miss Young and Mrs Jackson on the occasional Thursday afternoon, you would be made most welcome.  We might even offer you a taste of our produce!

(Remember that we can only run P2P in the first half term as the evenings are too dark and often too cold garden productively.)

Plot to Pot (P2P) is run by Miss Young and Mrs Jackson each Thursday from 3.30 to 4.30pm.  We have over 40 children on the register and have a wide range of activities based around our environmental area and kitchen.

 

We grow a variety of fruit, vegetables and salad crops and then turn them into delicious food.  More adventurously, we forage for wild food such as elderflower and elderberry, brambles, windfall apples, nettles and even pigeons, which are all prepared by the club members and eaten with relish.

 

The children absolutely love the excuse to be messing about in mud or picnicking in the sunshine whilst learning about where their food comes from and how to use it.

 

We also focus on biodiversity within the school grounds and encourage this by building and caring for habitat areas such as the stumpery, the log pile, the wild flower bank and the 'natural' parts of the environmental area.  On rainy days we make animal homes and animal feeders, so there is always something to keep us busy.

 

We welcome all ages from Year 1 to 6 and all the children work brilliantly together, all they need is work clothes, wellies and energy!
