Looking forward to Spring

This week the Rainbow Room children have been busy creating a beautiful Spring display and learning about what begins to grow, be born and blooms in Spring. They have also planted an abundance of flower, vegetable and fruit seeds which they will watch grow and plant out around our school when they are ready. They have also iced biscuits with the Ukranian flag on them in support of school children in the Ukraine.

Birdwatch

As part of the Annual RSPB Birdwatch Campaign, Year 3 have been busy building a bird hide in

the Rainbow Garden. They are learning how to identify the many birds we have visiting the garden and

making sure the bird feeders are topped up with seed. The Birdwatch campaign lasts for 3 days and all

information collated will be sent to the RSPB. If you would like to take part, go to the RSPB's website

for details.

Rainbow Garden providing for the Local Community

As the year draws to a close, we are pleased to announce how successful the Rainbow Garden has been in helping our local community through difficult times in 2020. Before Lockdown 1 commenced the Rainbow children had planted tomato, courgette and squash seeds, along with an array of Summer flower bulbs. These grew really well and all the vegetables harvested were distributed amongst people in our neighbourhood who were shielding or too poorly to go shopping.

Since September, the Rainbow children have been busy planting Winter flowers around the school and sowing wild flowers that will bloom next Summer, these flowers will encourage bees and butterflies.

Well done to Class 3C for making a fabulous nativity stable that is now up in the Rainbow Garden

Respecting Everyone in our Local Community

Three Rainbow Room children were chosen this week to visit Tate's Funeral Directors to plant Winter flowers. The Rainbow Room maintains the planter each season as part of Respecting Everyone in our Local community. The children hope visitors to the Directors will enjoy the brightly coloured flowers.
