Greenhouse 1

 Greenhouse Construction is now underway under the tutelage of our resident expert, Mrs Madsen who is ably assisted by our own, Mrs McElney. Our design is not the usual, 'walk-in greenhouse' but a whole different, 'lift the lid' design. We hope you enjoy some photographs of the build.

Mrs Madsen spent a long time deliberating over our designs. She commented on specific features which attracted her curiosity. It was decided that our greenhouse ‘s primary function would be to grow strawberries.

 The final design will include a combination of the ‘commended’ and ‘highly commended’ designs. The greenhouse will not a traditional ‘walk-in’ greenhouse but will have a sloping lid. This will allow ‘step-in’ access.  It was incredibley difficult to visualise the design so to help pupils and Mrs McElney do just this, Mrs Madsen asked pupils to 'hold' the build.   eco

Mrs Madsen looked very closely at our designs and chose elements from the 'commended' and 'highly commended' designs to include in our build.  eco  eco

 Bottles had to be sorted into organised groups

before being used to fill the gaps.
