RHS School Gardening Awards

We have joined the RHS Campaign for School Gardening and are working towards Level 3 (of 5) awards.

Level 1: The children created plans for our garden and listed everything they would like to grow. They know that seeds need soil, water and sunlight to grow. We took part in the RHS Big Seed Sow and planted sunflower and runner bean seeds. The children plan to create a sunflower house and a runner bean tee pee.

Award: We received a growing calendar, a certificate and lots of seeds!

Level 2: The children sprinkled 1000's of wildflower seeds in our garden and watered them. The children know that to help the flowers grow they need plenty of water. We planted onions, potatoes, carrots, lettuce, herbs and strawberries. We learned about the gardening equipment needed to prepare the soil and care for the plants. We also planted our pants to check the health of our soil as part of the Plant your Pants Campaign!

Award: We received a beautiful RHS Gardening book and a certificate!

Level 3: We are currently working towards level 3!
