It's a busy time on the farm at Joseph Norton Academy as we get ready for spring! We have been sowing our tomatoes and peppers, planting the lettuce, broccoli and cauliflower that we sowed during the winter and harvesting our winter salad for the school rabbits, Rebecca and Charlie.

Trees have been felled with some steely determination and gritted teeth in aid of the pigs too. We have also been wombling around for unused furniture, renovating and up-cycling it for use as vivariums in the animal care room.

This week in particular has seen a great team effort across all of Key Stage 3.  They have been using left over timber from some work carried out in half term.  We have been building a chicken coop so we can introduce some new ladies to the flock. All very exciting things on the farm and spring is almost here!
