#Win a gardening kit for your school or nursery with Sudocrem’s Get Out and Grow campaign

Get out and grow

I am an early years teacher and one of the favourite activities the kids are enjoying in my setting is getting outside and growing our own fruit and vegetables.

They love nothing more than planting seeds, watering them and then watching them grow, with our runner beans doing impressively well so far!

Just in time for summer, Get Out and Grow, is launching an incentive encouraging students to head outside and get planting, growing and learning about just where fruit and vegetables come from.

Why? Because according to a recent survey, 90% of children said that they would like a garden at school and at one primary school in Lincolnshire, a school garden made all the difference when it came to pupil’s behaviour.

The Benjamin Adlard Primary School, run by headmaster Sam Coy, was previously rated by Ofsted as one of Britain’s worst schools. Four years and one school garden later, and the Gainsborough school has won the national Pearson award for School of the Year: Making a Difference.

Headmaster Coy insists: “The children absolutely love den-building, just generally getting dirty and nature hunts. One child recently told me that he loves going to the forest school on a Tuesday afternoon so much as it helps him to behave all week as he never wants to not be able to go.

Starting in June and running throughout the month, Get Out and Grow will award school gardening starter kits to 20 schools nationwide. The kits will include children’s wheelbarrows, gardening gloves, mini-trowels and more, worth £160. And the good news is, anyone can enter! Nominating your local school is easy. Just fill in the rafflecopter widget below and comment below with the details of your chosen school, to be in with the chance to win.

Sponsored by British skincare brand, Sudocrem, the Get Out and Grow project was created following research that suggested gardening is being forgotten and that many children lack basic knowledge about the natural world and where their food comes from.
