Gold Medal Won at RHS Wisley
Aditi in Year 5 is the winner for Chorleywood Primary and built her garden at RHS Wisley. The theme this year is to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the publication of Enid Blyton’s Famous Five books. Aditi designed a garden with tunnels, boats, flowers and water. It incorporated sensory plants in different shapes and textures. It is a ‘madness of the senses.’ Here are some photos from the day - click on one to expand.

New Residents at Chorleywood Primary Allotment
Gardening Club has been very busy building a pond on the allotment and releasing some frogs spawn there. Mrs Davis said ""The space was originally homed by a ceramic sink but the frogs found it difficult getting in and out. We are hoping the frogs will prefer our new design which is abour 1.5 m sq.. It is much larger and completely built by the Gardening club. They dug down deep for the pond liner making sure the surfaces were clear of stones and level. Then they placed the liner in the hole and filled with fresh rain water that we have collected from our water butts on the allotment. Recycled wood chips and logs donated by PC Landscapes were placed around the overlap of the liner . The pond has been temporally made safe with a wire grid but we will be building a live willow guard which will go over the full area of the pond. The whole area surrounding it will be made to look like a wildlife area. We are so excited for the frogs,lets hope they will be content in their new habitat.""

Visit to the Houses of Parliament
On 10th July, children from the school council, the house captains and the Head and Deputy Head boys and girls visisted the Houses of Parliament. Amelie, Year 6, wrote, ""I enjoyed going to the Houses of Parliament. I was fascinated by the past and present. I couldn't believe that we were even allowed to go through the the way where only the Queen is allowed to go. I learnt lots and I really want to go back to watch a debate.""The day is shown in the attached pictures. Please click on one to enlarge
