The Gardening Club at our school is managed by one of our teaching assistants, Mrs Stockdale. The Gardening Club's aim is to encourage children to have pride in their environment, as well as showing them how to improve it by nurturing trees, plants and flowers. In addition to this, there are a number of vegetable plots under development, which will allow the children the experience to plant and grow their own food.

Spring Has Sprung at Langwith Bassett
After all the hard work of Year 6 and the Gardening Club in clearing the wildlife garden and pond, it appears Mother Nature has given them two thumbs up for their hard work. Two new visitors, a male and female mallard duck, have been seen using the newly improved facilities. Take a look below to see some photographs of our new visitors.
On Thursday 11th February, the Gardening Club had the help of some of the Year 6 children to begin clearing the pond in the Wildlife Garden, under the careful direction of Mrs Stockdale. The aim is to once again make it a pleasant, enjoyable area so that all the school's children can enjoy it when the better weather of summer comes. Take a look at the gallery below to see some of the great work done.
