Irchester plans: renewing and improving our wildlife area this spring!

February 6, 2018

Lab_13 has new plans for the wildlife area this spring. Over the last few years it has become a bit overgrown and tumbledown, and we have lost our lovely hedge along the back fence.


We will plant a new hedge along this fence

First we are going to clean out the pond because there is a type of weed that is taking over the pond that we don’t need. It is blocking all the light for the other plants, and it smells really bad! We are trying to figure out what it is. The animals like newts and frogs which live in the pond need some plants, but not too many!

We are going to replant a brand new hedge. The Woodland Trust is very generously going to give us some new tree seedlings to replant, to keep the wind out. Family club is going to help us out with this.

Mr Allen has been helping us a lot. He fixed the fences and the foundation stage children helped him spread out bark chippings on the path.  They did it when they were on their forest Friday, which is where foundation stage goes to the wildlife area to explore outside every Friday.

On the fences we are going to put up the pictures of the Earth, Sun and Rainbow which Family Club repainted last year.
