Pupils lend a hand to celebrate nursery school’s 90th birthday
NURSERY pupils have made their mark on their school by making tiles for a special commemorative garden.
The garden is being built to celebrate the school’s 90th birthday and the tiles are imprinted with the children’s hands.
Plans for the garden include a new interactive area with slides and flower beds and a pretty footpath lined with the personalised terracotta tiles.
James Allen, headteacher, said: “We wanted to do something to remember this special year and something that would stay with the school.
“This interactive garden will be a fantastic place for the nursery children to play in and it will be lovely for them to be able to find their own handprint incorporated.
“They’ll know they’ve left their mark at the school and will be able to revisit it in the future.”
The nursery has also added a new Forest School to its timetable, which allows pupils to spend time learning outdoors.
Mr Allen added: “This very timely addition means children can make the most of the new interactive garden as well as Beech House, our new outdoor learning centre.
“We think it’s great to give pupils a new way of creative learning.”
