New Part Of School Garden

on April 19, 2016

The children of the ICT Club went for a walk in the new part of the school garden. There have been a lot of changes in the garden. In the garden there are sensory beds with plants  that appeal to the five senses, sight:lots of colourful flowers will grow in this section, sound: plants that make different sounds eg grasses that swish will be found here. Smell: these plants will have lots of different scents, touch: some of these plants are soft and fluffy to touch and others are prickly. Taste: there will be lots of herbs here.

There is a sensory path also which will be a path surrounded by wild flowers. The children in the senior yard will be able to see a little bit of the garden and will be able to see the sensory path.

In the garden there is also a wormery that will be full with tiger worms and they will make the compost for the plants. The water from the compost will make the plants grow much faster. We also have an outdoor classroom that if teachers wanted to they could bring there class out and let them learn outside.
