Gardening

Welcome to our special Gardening club page. Here, you will be able to take a look at all the exciting things our great gardeners get up to each week! Enjoy!

Gardening Club is every Monday lunchtime at 12.35 p.m.

The children were disappointed with how sad and overgrown the vegetable patches were around the side of Cader Idris Classroom. We all decided together that this would be the area we would work the hardest on this term. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us otherwise we will be very muddy gardeners!
