Since the start of term, over 20 pupils have signed up to gardening club. So far, we have been concentrating on preparing the vegetable beds for the new growing season, which has meant a lot of weeding!
Autumn is the time of year when people, animals and birds prepare for the cold winter either by hibernation, migration or gathering extra food supplies.
Did you know?:
Leaves change colour in the autumn due to the green chorophyll breaking down. This allows the yellows, reds and purples of other chemicals in the leaves to show.
Don't forget to put extra food out for birds during the coldest months.
The earth is closet to the sun in December, even though the winter solstice is the shortest day of the year.
