Welcome to Our School
"Where every child has the chance to shine"
As you can see the flowerbeds at the front of school are bursting with life!
They needed watering 3 times a week throughout the hot sunny weather and that the rain we had last week gave the plants a really good soak and kick started them flowering.
The plants will flower at different times so there is lots more colour to look forward to. If you are walking past school the flowers that you can see in bloom now are multi-coloured Toadflax, orange and yellow Californian Poppy, pale blue Phacelia and pink Salvia. The tall red plant is called Red Orache.
Bumblebees are visiting the flowers too!!!
We have had some lovely comments and messages from passers-by and members of the public. When we planted the seeds back in early March we didn't know lockdown was going to happen and so we are especially glad they the flowers are brightening up so many peoples days in these difficult times...
'Can I tell you how much I am loving your wild flower borders around your school !
I walk past every day and part of the pleasure of my walk for me is seeing the flowers !
What a wonderful community project it is, benefiting so many people AND animals !
Well done on an amazing project which must have taken a lot of work and effort !
Also love your beehive - makes me smile when I see it !
WELL DONE ASHLANDS !
'I just wanted to say how much pleasure your display of wildflowers has given me during lockdown. Watching them grow and now bloom has made me smile each day as I have passed by, thank you.'
On Saturday 14th March we lifted the turf from the front of school to create the new flower beds. Many thanks to all who turned up to help
At the end of a very wet and windy February the children braved the cold to go outside and plant primroses around the trees at the front of school.
