Wacky Worm Squad

Woodford House has a new family adopted by Year 9 students. The girls have been busy setting up Woodford House’s very own worm farm. Some of you might be thinking ‘eww worms, they are disgusting and gross’. Don’t worry, I thought this too. But once you learn more about worms they are actually quite fascinating.


During the experience of setting up the worm farm, we got to hold the worms and learn about what they like and dislike. We all really enjoyed learning about the wonderful worms.

Mrs Knight came up with the great idea to have our own Woodford Worm Farm Committee. Georgia Russell, Kate Alexander, Georgia Niblett and I volunteered to help. Each week we have the duty of checking on the worms, feeding them and making sure there are no unwanted insects in the farm.

We are all very excited to be part of the committee, and we can’t wait to see the changes in the worm farm over time. Our worm farm currently sits in an out-of-bounds area, but we hope to make the area safer so everyone can visit and learn more about the worms as well. If you would like to know more, ask a member of the Woodford Wacky Worm Farm Committee.
