Today we went to Snowsfields so that we could garden. When we arrived there, we split up into groups of two. The first group planted sage and the second group that I was in, we were planting mint. When we finished planting we joined with the other groups and we all planted broad beans. After we finished, the other group watered the plants, while the group I was with took a photo with the volunteers. Then we said thank you.

Today’s trip was really fun and exciting! We went to Snowsfields to do some gardening! We planted some sage, mint and broad beans. We each got some gloves for our hands. When we were ready they gave us each some hand forks and trowels. We got into groups of four and my group planted sage. The other group did mint. Then all of us did the broad beans. We watered the crops and got ready to go.

Today 8 children from Year 5 went on a thrilling trip to Snowsfields to do gardening with Costain. When we entered the secret garden we explored it. We were given hand forks and trowels to dig the soil. We planted sage plants, mint plants and broad beans. This adventurous trip was amazing. Thank you very much1

Today we went to Snowsfields. We did gardening in groups of four and planted sage which was really fun. The other group planted mint and sage which smelt nice for me. Some adult gardeners took some photos of us in a group smiling. My favourite part was when I planted the sage with my partner Denis.

Zaid

We went on an exciting trip and travelled to Snowsfields to explore some gardening. We spotted two frogs emerging from the pond as we walked around the surrounding nature garden. A little while later, we started planting the sage, mint and broad beans. This is where it got messy! We loved all the greenery we had planted. In the end, we thanked the gardeners for helping us all the way. Afterwards, we had to wash our hands and leave the area. I had fun!

8 people went to Snowsfields and got to garden. Denis and Zaid enjoyed gardening plants and watering them. In groups of 4, the first plant we planted was called a sage. The other group planted mint. Afterwards we planted broad beans next to a stick and then watered the broad bean and the sage. In the beginning, we played hide-and-seek and took lots of photos.

Last Friday we went to Snowsfields to do some gardening. First we got some tools, which were trowels and a hand fork, and next we went to the mint plant. It smelled awesome. Secondly we dug a hole with our tools and put the plant in the hole. After that, we all gathered up and put some tall twigs into the soil and cut them with some giant scissors. Finally we made a hole with our fingers and planted the broad beans.
