Week 6

Week 6 - 6th November 2013


Please see photographs below.


Present: Clay; Anisa; Ibrahim; Mrs Dorey


This was the week we assembled our wormery. By looking through the clear plastic container we will be able to see how worms behave in the soil.


First we had to dig until we found lots of worms. This was very hard work as the worms had mostly gone down deep for the winter. Then we put them in the bottom of the container and covered them with layers of soil and sand ending up with dead leaves on the surface.


We marked the sand layers with a marker pen and then tied black cartridge paper round the outside. We made a label for the outside and put it in the greenhouse till next week.


After two weeks we will let the worms go.
