Key worker children dig for victory
Over the Easter holidays, Junior King’s has played host to a handful of key worker children. With the school grounds almost empty, these children have gamely taken on responsibility for planting the school vegetable patch as one of their activities, something Year 5 would have been doing as part of a “dig for victory” project, had they been returning to school as usual for the summer term.
With the nationwide lockdown in place and our learning provision moving online for the time being, we are grateful to the key worker children for taking on the all-important digging and planting. They even built a couple of fetching scarecrows to stand guard over the veg! With Mr Stevenson kindly volunteering to oversee the patch as term progresses, Year 5 will receive regular updates via 5B Radio, one of last term’s initiatives to maintain a sense of community while everyone works apart.
We can’t wait to see how the vegetables get on. Rumour has it that Mrs Károlyi’s dog, Bertie, has already been frightened by the scarecrows, so we have high hopes that they will deter any birds looking to get their five a day!
