Green Team, Fruit Tree Planting, 10.2.19
Due to a kind donation the Green Team were able to plant some fruit trees this week. We hope to be enjoying the fruit from them in years to come.
Thank you to everyone who joined the ‘Teignmouth Beach Clean’ group. It was great to see so many friendly faces on a warm and breezy Sunday.
Thanks to the Mayor, children got to enjoy a free ice-cream at the end!
More pictures of the morning can be found on the Teignmouth Beach Clean Facebook page.
This week, year 1 and 2 have been helping to get the pond ready for its liner. This mostly involved moving stones out the was to prevent it from being punctured and getting it ready for levelling by the Year 6 children.
After stage one of the pond completed at the weekend, some of the green team members got back in contact with an expert who has been helping us plan the pond.
Before they called, they took the time to plan what they wanted to say. They totally blew me away with their adult approach and manner on the phone. I’m incredibly proud. Sadly, it was an answering machine but we hope to hear back soon.
An enormous thank you to everyone who came along to help with the construction of the pond on Saturday. We couldn’t have done it with out you. Here are some photos of the amazing team. One of our old pupils, whose now at secondary school, also came back to lend us a hand.
One of the Green Team members have contacted our expert ‘The Pond Man’ and we hope to update you about the next stage soon.
Green Team met today to map out the area for the new pond. Everyone is eagerly awaiting the digger on Saturday 15th June. We hope to see you there on between 9 and 12 too, if you are able to lend a hand.

Today, the Green Team were weeding in the vegetable patch and pulled up a reddish. It isn’t fully grown but it is still edible. It can grow to the size of a gold ball as it turns into a sphere shape.
We also looked in on how are pizza patch is growing and were happy the tomatoes are getting nice and tall.
Look out in the spring for some lovely colourful flowers. Green Team worked hard in their lunch time today to plant some bulbs given to us for free from Bulbs4Kids.
Green Team met at lunch time today and took inspiration from fireworks to create their own pieces of natural art.
In recognition of their hard work and mature approach to the green aspects of life, Green Team visited the Pinbrook recycling facility today and the Energy from Waste plant in Exeter to further their education.
They learnt a great deal and their manners and behaviour were complimented throughout – very proud.
Massive thanks to the Recycling staff but especially to Clare and Lorna for offering their time and talent to the trip too!
Today the Green Team have been sorting through all the rubbish generated by Hazeldown School yesterday! We found all sorts of rubbish – paper, cardboard, food packaging, old pens and glue sticks. We were surprised at how big our pile of rubbish from one day looked, but we are excited with the plans we are making to reduce our waste.
