At Cradley School we are very lucky to have fantastic school grounds which we are able to make use of in all weathers.  In our school garden we grow fruit and vegetables such as beans, potatoes, apples, raspberries and pumpkins.  Each class is responsible for one of the raised beds, with the whole operation being overseen by gardening club.  We order seeds from the Morrisons ‘Let’s Grow’ catalogue and grow these on in the school greenhouse.  We then grow plants on and either eat the produce or sell it at the school gate.

Forest Schools provides a wonderful environment for learning.  All ages make use of the area, which has a mix of mature oak trees, native coppice and long grass.  As well as campfires and den building, the area is used for many aspects of the curriculum such as science, maths, story-telling and art.  Our cross country track also passes through the Forest Schools area. 

Eco Schools at Cradley School is coordinated by the Eco committee.  Our current projects include the RSPB Big Schools’ Bird Watch, litter picking in the village and school grounds, saving energy and water and creating a pond which is situated next to the school garden.

Value of the Month

COOPERATION

Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labour.  For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion.
