Wild Garden Club have been at it again! In a quiet unloved corner of the school playing field they have recycled some old tractor tyres by turning them into giant planters. They are wide enough for plenty of children to sit on and get close to the flowers that will hopefully come up in the next few weeks. They used seeds sent to school by Grow Wild, a mix of night bloomers, pollinator friendly, field, woodland and sensational flowers. Once they come up we hope to enjoy our pack ups there as well as encourage the teachers to use them for art, science, geography, literacy, maths…..

The oldest children in school have been enjoying the grounds one last time before they move to secondary in September. On a massive bug and plant hunt they found many species and then tried to draw them in as much detail as possible. They also had fun creating their own picture frames from sticks and string and hung them in the school wood for all to admire. Reception classes used the wood just after and were most impressed.

Reception classes at Headlands have been learning about all sorts of Modern Art artists and have brought a giant Pollock inspired wildflower meadow out for the whole school to admire. It took up the whole side of the Out of School Club shed and the youngest children in school explained to everyone how Pollock dribbled, poured and splattered paint to create his art pieces. We hope you like it.....

Blooming Marvelous!

Headlands Out of School Club children created the school's entry into the Bloom! Festival in York last weekend. They recycled old toys, yoghurt pots and transplanted grass turf and veg from the school grounds. We had great fun building our entry and placing it in our new ridiculously pink wheelbarrow - which we got to keep for entering - hooray! We also found out that lots of the veg that we used will flower, which many of the children didn't realise, so although our entry was mostly shades of green in a few more weeks we could have a riot of colour on our hands!
