Year Five had an exciting afternoon today planting bulbs in Hoyles Park as part of the Proffitts CIC community project Lancashire. After we had established that we were planting flower bulbs (not lighting up the park!) Martin and Clare - from the project - explained how to use trowels, spades, sticks and special bulb planters to make holes in the ground. There was much excitement over worms and a brilliant answer from Mia when we were discussing the food chains which may begin with the flowers we had planted: Flowers - Insects - Frogs - French people!
