Pupils enjoy a flower show to stir the senses
A PRIMARY school for children with severe learning difficulties enjoyed a day out at the Hampton Court Flower Show.
Grangewood School, which is part of the Eden Academy, had entered a national scarecrow competition and were invited to the famous Royal Horticultural Society show earlier this month.
A member of staff said: “It was lovely to see so many children enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of the show, which included the rose marquee, a butterfly dome and fabulous show gardens.”
The school, which is based in Eastcote but run by Hillingdon Council, was invited to the show after pupils, inspired by the children’s book Whatever Next!, made a bear, stuffed it with straw, and dressed him in their school uniform.
During their visit the guests picked up some plants and decorations for the school, in Fore Street.
