On 1 July 2021, Mr Holmes officially opened our new Sensory Garden.

Once upon a time, this was a small, walled garden used by KS1 classes to grow plants and search for minibeasts. Unfortunately, it became overgrown and neglected due to the Covid lockdown closures.

Miss Holloway took inspiration from a class visit to Blakesley Hall Museum. She discussed her ideas with Mrs Higgins and a plan emerged…

After a lot of hard work, the new garden was ready to be revealed. The first visitors were our Year 3 children who were astonished at the colourful planters and flowers, the ornate hangers and the amount of small creatures they could see.

Some comments included:

  • “Wow, it is beautiful… I love it!”
  • “Can I come and sit and read here? It is so calm!”
  • “I can’t wait to see which birds eat from the feeders.”

Many congratulations and thanks are due to Miss Holloway and Mrs Higgins and their team of helpers for creating such an amazing space, which can be used by all our children over the upcoming years!
