Welcome to the Coquet Park Allotment Club page!
At Coquet Park we have a wonderful allotment area at the back of the school. In allotment club we learn lots about how to grow different plants and vegetables and throughout the year we look after them and help them to grow.
Mrs Cairns runs the allotment club with Mr Jackson, a volunteer from the Friend's of Briar Dene, every Monday lunchtime and all keen green-fingered children from Year 1 to Year 4 are welcome along to help. There are always lots of jobs to keep everyone busy!!
Allotment club have been busy planting! We have had help from Hugh to plant onions, potatoes, pumpkins, sun flowers, carrots, lettuce and loads more! We even up cycled old wellies to become plant pots.
This half term we are working hard to harvest the crops that have grown over the summer. These photos show us harvesting the onions. We hope to sell our produce at the Harvest Festival in a few weeks time. The children who attend this club will change on a half termly basis so everyone will get a chance to help keep our allotment in tip top condition!

October 2016 - Harvest Festival
We had a lovely crop of potatoes, carrots, apples and courgettes from our allotment which we sold at our Harvest Festival. We even had our own Coquet Park Eco shopping bags on sale for those customers who forgot their bags!!
Look how our sunflowers have grown over the summer holidays!!
We have some new Year 4 allotment helpers . We went out and had a look at how our vegetables have grown, we will be harvesting them soon!
We have been very busy planting and weeding our vegetables and today we had a strawberry hunt. We found a lot of lovely ripe strawberries!
