3,000 bulbs planted at Junior Boys school in outdoor learning activity

16th October 2020

Boys from Reception to Year 6 helped plant 3,000 bulbs at Claires Court Junior Boys school to add colour to their grounds next spring.

The green-fingered five to 11 year olds planted a variety of crocus and snowdrop bulbs, which were funded by the school’s PTA, around the grounds of the school and learned some basic gardening skills.

Mr Richards, Head of Claires Court Junior Boys, said: “We’re so pleased and thankful that our PTA was able to support this initiative, which enabled the boys to work outdoors in their bubbles. The bulb planting has brought everyone together to create something to look forward to next spring and enjoy the fabulous school grounds.”

Theo Ainsley from year 6, added: “I like planting bulbs because I can work with my friends and the teachers. I also liked being able to create brightness in the school grounds for the pupils, teachers and visitors. I love all different creatures so I was pleased to see some worms because they will turn the soil over and help the flowers grow.”
