Over the last two weeks we have started work in the overgrown wildlife garden. We are hoping that, with assistance from parents and children, we will be able to clear it and re-create a new area of learning.
We have started to remove all the ivy, weeds and dead wood, the latter of which will be retained as habitat for the local wildlife, and things are already looking good.
We have lots of plans to create insect habitats, bird feeding stations, a vegetable plot and recreate the woodland area. Any ideas or advice is warmly welcomed.
A huge thank you must go to the parents and children who have already volunteered their services. The children in Reception have taken much pleasure and shown great interest in the project – already searching for mini-beasts, some experiencing gardening for the first time.
Mrs Cassidy is co-ordinating the project and believes the Wildlife area will enhance our children’s learning. She truly hopes that with on-going help from parents and children alike, it will be a runaway success, to be enjoyed by everyone as it matures.
