Planting Viola Flowers!

The KS1 Hub children have been busy today re-planting Viola flowers.

We needed lots of equipment for the planting;

  •  Trowels
  •  Flower pots
  •  Compost
  •  Gardening gloves

First we filled the flower pot until it was around 3/4 full.


Then we used our fingers to make a hole in the middle for the flower.

Next, we gently pulled the flower from it’s old pot using our hands to break up the roots a little and popped it into the hole we had made.

Finally, we added more compost around the edges and patted it down.

We can’t wait to see them in the wellies!

How to Make a Worm Habitat!

Tim has been very busy with Miss Whitton building his very own worm habitat!
First he needed to add a layer of soil and then a layer sand. He kept adding the soil and the sand until the habitat was 3/4 full.
Next he had to find some worms for their new home!
Then Tim added some worm food – this can be many different things like banana skins, apple cores or simply just leaves.
After that, Tim needed to water the soil. He must do this daily to make sure it stays moist.
After a few days the worms will have mixed up the layers, and you should be able to see where they have been burrowing.
We can’t wait to see!

How tall are you?

Are you taller or shorter than an Emperor Penguin?

Our extremely talented resident artist, Miss Whitton, painted a life sized Emperor Penguin on our Hub door in order for us to compare our height.

Super Swimming Davey!

Davey was so excited to be special guest during swimming lessons with Ganton Primary School. He absolutely loved splashing Mrs Rowbottom. Thank you Ganton!

KS2 HUB Trip to Pickering Park Community Orchard

We had a lovely morning at Pickering Park Community Orchard. The sun was shining when we were met by Yvette who works at the orchard.

We got to taste three varieties of apple that are grown at the orchard – they were all delicious. We saw all of the bee hives and learnt how important they are in the pollination process and are the reason we have apples every year.

We used ‘Apple Wizards’ to collect all of the fallen apples from the ground and then we got to try the freshly pressed apple juice!

We picked apples from the trees and were allowed to take some home. A fabulous morning and well worth a trip!
