Pupils lend a hand to cel­e­brate nurs­ery school’s 90th birth­day

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

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.”
