The Secret Garden

Pupils from the nursery to Year 5 at St Anselm's School were all involved in this fantastic project to transform an overgrown and unused area of the school grounds into a 'Secret Garden'.  They had to clear the site  and work out what plants and resources were there that they could keep or could be reused.  This included draining a pond, taking out fish, tadpoles etc and keeping them safe whilst the pond was relined and a wire mesh was put over for the safety of the children.  They then worked hard during lessons, at break times and during their weekends to transform the garden.

The end result was amazing, a beautiful new garden and learning resource, which they proudly invited their parents to visit for an afternoon tea.  Brilliant work!
