Transforming a space

Crosshall Junior School started to make changes last year.

walkway before changes
border before changes

 

Unused and unnoticed areas have become a new border to attract pollinators and outdoor classroom spaces with walkway to new orchard and wildflower areas. This will allow children and teachers to make use of the areas for lesson and recreation times. The changes might not show much yet, but they are looking forward to seeing how Pollinators will make use of it as well.

Year 2 have been working hard with their teacher, Mrs Farrington, on a pollinator display which reminds us of the wonderful work UK pollinators do.

Busy planting and working together.

We have bought and planted Bizzie Liz, Marigolds, Hydranger and Begonias. We painted the pallets to brighten up the area. It was a hard job but we managed to change our  play area into a colourful environment.

We had the fantastic opportunity to have Mrs Hawthorne in school talking about planting trees and told a great story about 'The man who planted trees'.   We have learned so much about the environment.
