Phoenix Primary School ‘Where We Rise to the Challenge’

Our bio dome.

smileyWe are very lucky to have a bio dome which is located in our large playground. We officially opened it in September 2016 and we were delighted when Rachael Maskell MP-(who was then shadow secretary of state for the environment and rural affairs) came to cut the ribbon!


smileyDuring the spring and summer terms we run an after school bio dome club. Mrs Bentley provides gardening and science activities for children from the foundation stage to upper key stage 2. We have been successful in growing herbs which Sue the cook used for making homemade soup, daffodil and tulip bulbs that were sold at the Christmas fayre! During science week 2018 each class had a session in the biodome which included collecting recycled material and food for the wormery and planting lettuce seeds and garlic bulbs. We were luck enough to have an excellent crop of tomatoes and potatoes at the end of the school year which made their way into the school's salad bar and into Sue's excellent scouse! 

Classes use the biodome throughout the year for their science lessons. During the hot summer months Mrs Bentley has a rota of very enthusiastic children who help with watering, weeding and tidying up.

noDespite storms, snow and a few vandalism incidents the bio dome is going from strength to strength. 

Our aim is to display any food we grow at the school gate and ask for donations in return.
