Allotment Summer
chickensWe have a securely fenced double plot allotment that we access from the playing field.  The allotment includes:

 

The allotment offers plenty of opportunities to explore and learn about the natural environment. Children enjoy digging, planting, caring for and watching a variety of fruit and vegetables grow.

We have a chicken run which houses three chickens for the children to observe, help care for and collect eggs from.  Children are then able to use the eggs they have collected and the produce they have grown, in their cooking activities.
