Green-fingered Priory Infant children busy planting and growing

Youngsters gardening at Priory Infant School

The children at Priory Infant School in Ramsgate have been busy planting and growing this term. The youngsters have been growing a variety of flowers and vegetables.

The children in reception are keen to water the potatoes, tomatoes and pumpkins ready for the summer. “It’s amazing to see them grow so tall,” said Alice in reception.

Miss Halford, early years teacher, organised a team of parent volunteers to help out with the gardening. Sarah, Amarsari and Natalia have been coming in twice a week to work with the children and teach them how to grow the plants and vegetables.

“It’s a lovely opportunity to teach the children where their food comes from and how to care for plants,” said deputy head Mrs Rogers.

The children in early years are looking forward to making their produce into a delicious salad in the summer term.
