YOUNGSTERS at Weaverham Forest Primary have converted their school hall into a huge potting shed by planting 200 pumpkin seeds.
All the pupils now have their own plant, and will nurture them over the next four months.
In October the school will hold its first Pumpkin Week, when the fruits of the children’s labours will be weighed, decorated and cooked!
The project is the brainchild of the Friends of Forest PTA and is being run in association with Weaver Vale Garden Centre, Northwich.
Centre manager Mike Davies was in school on Wednesday to show pupils how to plant and care for their plants.
Headteacher Sue How said: “We are always looking for new and exciting ways to teach the children science, and this is a wonderful way of bringing all the pupils together with the same objective.”
