Bootle in Bloom!

 

This year, children and staff have been working hard to develop our garden / allotment area, Harrison's Yard. We wanted to create an outdoor area where children could appreciate the natural world; learn how to help plants grow and further help our planet by creating this environment using recycled materials! We also wanted to create a small world nature area for fairies!

 

Take a look at our progress below...

 

 

Scavenging for materials for our fairy garden village...

Creating our Gardens…

 

As part of our 'Pledge for our Planet' topic, children had been learning about plants, including: parts of plants, what they need to grow and how they are vital for the environment. The children have been making good use of this knowledge when creating their fairy gardens!

Our finished recycled houses and gardens for fairies...

 

We put our knowledge and designs together and created our own 'fairy village' from recycled materials...

We are so excited to have developed Harrison's Yard into a beautiful area to explore, create, learn about and support plants and wildlife...

Our next environmental projects are already underway!

We are currently:

- collecting votes in Tesco Stores to raise money to create a multi-generational allotment between our school and the community care home;

- waiting on approval of our designs for new woodland in Bootle.

 

So watch this space!
