During the latest lockdown, we took the opportunity to make some exciting changes to our school and grounds ready for when the children returned.
Thanks to the generous donation of an outdoor pergola from local resident Andrew Morris, we have been able to create a 'reading nook' for the children in our newly created quiet area. They use the space to sit and chat, read a book, colour, or just enjoy the wildlife information boards. We have also created a wildflower meadow area which will (hopefully) encourage and support bees, butterflies and insects. Becky Smith, an ex-parent, also made a generous donation from her driveway fair in Alresford, which allowed us to purchase the colourful wildlife information boards. The children really love this space as the photos show.
We have also introduced a 'reading wigwam' into the library. Thanks to the excellent sewing skills of Havv Buckles, the wigwam is enjoyed every day by children from across the school.
Our Bumblebee children have also been enjoying the sunshine and some new additions to their outdoor learning space! They really enjoy watching their herbs and vegetables grow in the new planters.
Finally, we have purchased a beautiful table for our refurbished courtyard. Thanks to a sponsored silence by one of our Honey Bee children, we now have a space that is used regularly for outdoor learning, SEN therapy, quiet play and reading. Thanks Scott!
