We are really excited to say that work is now complete on our sensory garden! 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 have a variety of different materials such as pebbles, brick, decking and woodchip. There is 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 was an underused resource. It’s a lovely space and we are very excited it has been transformed 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!
