Spring Science

Hello everyone, I’m sure that you are missing school and science just as much as me!

Despite the unusual circumstances, I’m positive of one thing that has made you smile recently…. the weather!

That’s right! Spring is here and the sun has been saying hello every day for us.

Here are some things that you can do at home- in your garden- to help encourage wildlife in your garden. I won’t be updating it everyday, but keep an eye on this space for things you can do.

Today, I’m introducing you to homemade plant pot!

How to create a container garden for wildlife

Use a quirky container

You can use anything you like for planting. Try an old watering can, chimney pot, kettle or teapot, holey boots, metal pails and buckets, bird or other pet cage, paint tins, catering tins, pans and colanders, veg racks… the sky’s the limit!

  1. Find an appropriate container (check with an adult that you can use this!)
  2. Fill it with soil from the garden
  3. Fill with cuttings, any seeds that you may have around the house… what about vegetable/fruit seeds!
  4. Keep watering and see what grows!


Please send comments of pictures of what you manage to achieve. I will do the same!

Keep safe!

Miss Chambers

    I am really looking forwards for doing that. I think if this sun shines all day (it will) I might do it today.
    Thank you. Hope school opens after Easter break.

      I would love to see what you create Norah.
      Remember- even cuttings from your garden or some waste potato skins might work!
      I look forward to seeing what you create..
      I really hope school opens soon. But these measures are there to keep us all safe so we must ensure that we stick to them.
