We have a variety of different sized and shaped bird boxes have been donated to encourage wild life. Ours is a garden where pupils can spend time away from ball and chasing games, enjoying benches and chunky planters for seating. Children can be seen playing the musical notes, using magnifying glasses and bug pots to look for insects or patterns in the plants. An area set apart, at times, as a Sacred Space for Collective Worship and ceremonies to mark special days. A beautiful corner of our busy play area where pupils, staff and members of our community can enjoy creation and pause to reflect.
