We are really proud of the work so far on our new sensory garden. The children love it - certainly a magic moment when they venture to see the pond, the barefoot walk, the caterpillar tyres and the sensory activities. Still to be finalised but very nearly there!
We have transformed a large space adjacent to our woodland into an educational wild life area with sensory garden and soon to come picnic area. During lockdown we delivered to all children a pack of wildflower seeds to grow and then bring them back to school to plant altogether in our new wildflower patch, marking our Walton family of growing and flourishing together, even in the most difficult times!
Following the recent pandemic was an ideal time to create our large sensory garden, as our whole school focus on wellbeing, kindness and mental health remains high on our agenda.
