Gardening Club

Gardening Club is an integral part of the Whole School Wellbeing Programme at St Mary's.  All the children throughout the school can access the school garden.

The children are encouraged to explore this environment, grow bulbs and various plants and vegetables, tend and look after this area and encourage wildlife.

Many bird boxes attract birds to nest year after year.  Wellies are used as planters and children create bird feeders and bird baths from recycled materials.  There are different areas to the garden including grassed area, compost bins, huge planters for vegetables and strawberries, digging areas and a patio.
