Dig for Victory!

Class 5 have enjoyed an afternoon in our garden without a drop of rain in sight!

Having learnt about rationing and the ‘Dig for Victory’ campaign, launched by the government during WW2, Class 5 donned their wellies and enjoyed an afternoon outside. We had a go at planting some seasonal vegetables, like they did during the war, and undertook some maintenance work such as weeding, painting the benches with protective varnish and having a general tidy up. Not only did we learn some History, but we were able to reinforce our learning of plants and became ‘au fait’ with how to use garden equipment safely. We are very lucky to have such a wonderful resource on our doorstep and cannot wait to go out again!
