Wildflower Meadow Bursts into Bloom!

1st July 2017

After a long, anxious wait, our wildflower meadow has suddenly burst into life! It presented quite a challenge to get the whole area rotovated back in the wet, winter months and we were all beginning to doubt whether the seeds were going to take - or win the battle with the grass and buttercups! However, poopies, cornflowers, field marigolds and pignut are now all flourishing, as well as some rogue cosmos and a few other yet-to-be-identified species! If you wish for a peep, look over or through the fence on the right as you enter the main office entrance.
It was fantastic that the flowers opened in time for Y2 to release their butterflies, and children have spotted bees, butterflies, hoverflies and other pollinating insects, already making their way to the patch.
Children of several year groups have all tried their hand at photographing the meadow ... look out for some of the results on the website and around the school.
Thank you so much to all the parents and children who helped bring this project to fruition.
