St Kentigern’s Primary School visit

Some of the school children from St. Kentigern’s Primary School visited Layton Allotments site this morning.

Their visit was an activity as part of a project they

are doing at school on healthy eating…

         "Why not Chocolate for Breakfast?".

The children aged between 4 and 5 years old were very interested in looking around the Allotment Site.

Allotment holder and bee keeper,Mica showed them his bee hives and explained to them how the honey was made and collected.

The children were impressed with the chickens kept on site and were shown inside a poly tunnel and the vegetables which were growing on the plot.

They then visited the wild life area of the site, looked for frogs near the dyke and were shown all the different trees that the children from Layton School had planted there.

The children enjoyed their visit and

 would all like to visit again in the spring when there will be so much more for them to see.

We would welcome them back to see the changes the seasons make onsite.
