Monthly Newsletter Raise your ICT skills in raised gardens

January and february 2020



Our students started to prepare the short presentations about the chosen vegetable and crops which can be cultivated in our gardens

We also made a chart with the important dates including sowing time, planting time and harvesting time for Slovakia conditions

Students started to gather some information about the climate conditions such as air temperature, soil temperature, precipitation in Slovakia...
The students tried to find out why are climate conditions important for the agriculture and growing plants in our school gardens...



Renovation of the school Erasmus panel in Spanish school with a brief of the mobility and the following activities.

Spanish partner also started with gathering material from the Digital book. Spain is in charge of “lettuce”. Students search information about its climate and place conditions, dates of sowing and harvesting, compatible and incompatible species and its special care activities.

Research of another typical cereal in Valencia: rice. They have also searched about tigernuts. Presentation with Adobe Spark.

Students started to translate information about some crops into Spanish and made some presentations about them

Introduction of experiments in biology lessons: P2P learning&teaching.

Our students participating in this Erasmus project prepared all the materials and explanations to lead some experiments with the youngest students in Secondary school. First experiment was related to starch in plants and the importance of photosynthesis.

After some testings in our raised beds we started to exchange our seeds! From Spain we sent lettuce seeds and we received tomatoes from Italy, radish from Slovakia and parsley from Germany.



Students searched the information about fennel and made the sheet of fennel with adobe spark post

The students worked land and planted the seeds of fennel and salad

The teachers met the parents of the children about 4th mobility in Germany

Students knew the sense box and put it in the raised bed.

eTwinning based learning 🖥

Students received seeds for planting from international partners and sent them important biological material



German students prepared short presentation about the Agriculture in Moers

Then they prepared study material - basic information about Sense Boxes

Here are some students' summaries of their work on project activities during January

Last month was January and we have Done posters for day of opened door

We have also cleaned our raised beds in the garden and we made a life cycle of tomatoes, cucumber and of carrot.

At the day of opened door we had to talk about the exchange so that the kids will choose for this school and for this workshop .

In January we wrote many life circles about plants that grown in Germany. We think about the exchange students there are coming in March. The 9th grade students have an internship in this week and they have to ask the concern to catch up the week in the Easter holidays. Also in January we had open-door day so we have to think about the exchanges and do some posters about it. On the day we have to show the elementary students what we do in the workshop.

You can sow the brussels sprout from March to the end of July. It is ready after seven months so from September to February. The brussels sprout needs a loamy ground. The ground has to be calcareous. The perfect pH value, to grow a brussels sprout is 6.5-7.0. It grows best, when the temperature is between 10 and 12 degrees Celsius and with high humidity.

The Brussels sprout has a dark green colour, when the colour gets yellow the brussels sprout has a nutrient-deficient. You should not cut the top of brussels sproud, because then it can not survive in the cold. When it is windy outside you have to stick the brussels sprout.

Broccolis are cruciferous. They are from Asia and since the 16th century in Europe especially in Italy and France. Presumably the broccoli and the cauliflower descend from the brassica cretica it is growing in south Greece. You can buy it all the year but it grows best when you plant it by your own. It haven’t a closed inflorescence, rather big leaves, they are lie on long fleshy stems and green or white flower buds. From Italy the broccoli is growing in summer or autumn but from England the broccoli is growing in winter so it is very cold-resistant. The root have to be 1 centimeter under the ground. The planting distance have to be 40-50 centimeters. It grows better if you take compost and Algae, it covers the high calcium requirement and deep important.
