On Thursday, we were visited by Jo Hatton from Sparsholt College and 2 judges from the Alresford Country Show. They came to look at our display of work that shows how we have been growing watercress and garlic, making butterfly houses and the clay work we made at Linkenholt Countryside day. Chelsea, Taylor and Charlie O did a tremendous job of telling them all about our work, especially how we used the garlic to make garlic bread and pizza’s in our cob oven. We were also able to let them have a taste of the honey from our very own bees!
Here is what the judges said about our competition entry;
LISS JUNIOR: These pupils were able to explain their visit to the Linkenholt Estate in great detail and chat confidently about what they had enjoyed and learnt throughout their visit and the project. They had grown garlic and watercress with great success, and cooked garlic bread. The school honey was delicious and the children were able to effectively explain its source and many facts about bees. Their display incorporated many of the national curriculum subjects and was colourful and engaging, whilst the children’s enthusiasm for their project was infectious.
“a Highly Commended being awarded to the pupils from Liss Junior School for their brilliant explanations and artwork”. The trophies will be publicly presented at the Alresford Show (Saturday 6th September) at 2.30pm. Thank you so much to all involved.
I have great pleasure in announcing that the judges have awarded us ‘HIGHLY COMMENDED’ for the second year in a row. Congratulations HG – you have done a terrific job! (Mrs G).
