Green Team are pleased to announce the completion of our school garden
site. This long awaited project was completed by Wood End Park’s
dedicated grounds team: John Carroll, Gary Richardson and Ben
Mourton. Well done, team! During the first week back, the
Team have been busy sharing this news with their peers, promoting the
completion of the garden on the school’s first official celebration of
Earth Day – this is an international day to promote the protection of
The Acorns (Upper Key Stage 2 members) have been busy working with
Deborah Harvey from the Royal Holloway University on a number of
biodiversity projects. This has encouraged the children to
reuse different materials to create amazing items that will encourage
helpful mini-beasts around our school.
On Friday 19th May, children created bee homes from old plastic bottles
and bamboo canes. These lovely homes were placed around trees at the
back of the field, to encourage these friendly pollinators around our
grounds; I’m sure they will soon be busy encouraging more flowers and
plants to grow.
With all these projects on course for
this Summer Term, Wood End Park Academy are well on their way to
achieving their next School Gardening Award. Great work team!
They were also introduced to some majestic stag beetles and their
larvae, which the Green Team members were excited to talk about and
share with their classes.
