Design a Poster


Can you design a poster about the wormeries?


We need to give our worms the correct scraps to eat. They use our scraps to make compost which we can use in the garden. Use the information below to create a colourful A4 poster reminding Mrs Holleran which scraps to save when she is preparing our delicious dinners. 


Worms DO like - fruit and vegetable scraps and peelings, tea bags, shredded newspaper, egg box cardboard and crushed egg shells. 


Worms DO NOT like onions, citrus peel (lemons, oranges etc), meat, egg, dairy foods and garden waste (e,g, weeds). 


Give completed posters to Miss Grant by 3rd November. The best ones will be laminated and displayed in the kitchen, staff room and garden. 

The School Garden is now open to pupils most lunchtimes. Here's how it looks so far. Look out for more planting over the coming weeks.
