Gardening Club Trip to Hampton Court - Monday 29th June 2015

After our 2014 success, children from Sunflowers Gardening Club made the trip to Hampton Court to set up their scarecrow entry, ready for judging by the public.  Vincent Van Gogh was the inspiration for our entry. The  theme was Celebrating Art History.  Van Gogh was made from recycled materials and seasonal flowers.  

Unfortunately we did not make it into the final three however we were very proud to make it to the final for a third year in a row. Mrs Palmer and Mrs Watford would like to thank all the children that they have gardened with for their hard work and their families too for their ongoing support.
