We are really excited to say that work is beginning on our sensory garden over the Easter Break! You may remember that last year, we asked children to submit garden designs. We were overwhelmed by the response! Lots of ideas were taken from all the winning designs by children. These were submitted to the landscapers and incorporated into the final design, as pictured below. The new sensory garden will have a wildlife zone, a herb garden, a memory garden and a serenity garden. The different areas will have a variety of different materials such as pebbles, brick, decking and woodchip. There will be a variety of different plants such as herbs, bushes, shrubs, wildflowers, flowers that attract different wildlife such as bees and butterflies, plants with different scents, colours and textures.
As you can see from photos, the courtyard is currently an underused resource. It’s a lovely space and we are very excited to watch it transform into bright, colourful space which children can enjoy, relax in and learn from. We can’t wait for it to officially open so school can really benefit from another lovely outdoor space!
We will bring you some updated photos as progress is made.
