Year 6 get composting

Since the beginning of term we have been collecting all the kitchen and cook club waste. The peelings and choppings, the left over uncooked food, plus leaves and grass, and making a compost heap at the back of the main building.

Year 6 went down to have a look and were surprised to see it all turning into soil, almost by magic. It backed up our topic on Changing Materials as we considered how the materials had changed over time. We all planted a bulb in the compost to grow for the  spring!

Here we are on a lovely autumn day with our compost.img_0222
