A concrete wall will need a footing for it to sit on, then I'd use 4" concrete blocks not do all the work of forming and trying to pore in that narrow a form.
We buy both full and half blocks and pre lay it out so there's no cutting of the blocks needed.

Ah ****, I already did it. Three walls one solid piece with rebar, no blocks. And no footing!! Joe I don’t think it’s going to move, it is only 2’ high. I did put one foot of gravel under the front if it, that should hold it.
