At Middleton we are very lucky with our extensive grounds which include Lucy’s Orchard which has fruit trees and raised beds. Each year some classes use the area to grow food to eat in school and we have a Gardening Club. Helen Clough Jones is a parent volunteer who has spent time working with various children in the school to set up the garden beds. Helen has worked with groups of children during the last two academic years and each year has grown more and more produce. These photos show some of the Gardening Club children and the produce which is growing in the raised beds at the moment.
Next year Gardening Club will be offered to Year 3 children again.
We are very grateful to Helen for working with Gardening Club all year round. Thank you.
