Newton Primary School

Rooted in love and care

Gardening Club

Gardening Club is after school on Thursdays. Anyone can come (including parents or grandparents if they want). It is run by Mrs Hardy and Mrs Puttock with Mrs Card.

We are going to keep our school garden looking beautiful. We will design flowerbeds and plant annual and perennial plants, bulbs, shrubs and trees, We hope to carry on planting and harvesting fruit and vegetables. We look after and maintain the pond. We have bird feeders around the garden to keep filled.


We also have fun activities that are perfect for the garden. So far we have painted stones, carved pumpkins, dug up potatoes for Harvest Festival, made a Guy for bonfire night and tried fire lighting.

At the moment we are trying to get the school better at composting left over fruit and teabags!
