Our Veggie Patch

This afternoon we went outside with Sue van Mierlo (Sophie's Mum) to plant our vegetable seedlings.
Each class has a raised garden which we made earlier in the year.
Sue showed us that some of the seeds were in strips to make them easier to plant.
First we made a long trench to lay the seeds in.

Next we lay the strip of seeds in the trench.
Finally we covered the seeds with soil.



Pumpkin Planting

 Wednesday 27th October.
 Today Sophie's Mum, Sue, came into school to help us plant our pumpkin for the 'Pumpkin Growing' competition. We need to look after it really well if our class is going to win the competition.
