The first week of a new term and this means a new gardening club. Each class teacher in the school chooses one member of the class to be in the club and this way we get 12 children, two children from each year group 1 – 6. The club meets every Friday lunchtime and the children stay in the club for the whole year.
And so to this weeks task……apple picking. The trees that we planted a couple of years ago, while small in size, have apples bending their branches to the floor with fruit! A quick visit from the Ham and High (a local newspaper) to document the event then the children enthusiastically pick all the fruit. Inside, the apples are sliced and boiled, the crumble is mixed and within the hour each child has a piping hot crumble from the oven. There are even a few spare for the teachers…Yum!
