Ilfracombe Infant & Nursery School
Children across the school have had opportunities to garden this year. The Reception children had a go at growing broad beans and runner beans a little earlier this year as part of exploring the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Their Year 1 children grew some pots of flowers outside their classrooms as part of their work on living and growing. Meanwhile in Year 2 the gardening club children are busy growing potatoes and tomatoes as well as keeping many of the school planters and hanging baskets looking attractive. All if the Year 1 and 2 children continue to help in the process of producing much of their own compost at the school.
