About our outdoor learning zone

Our outdoor learning zone comprises 3 areas

  • Our wonderful pond (funded by the PTA) which is now maturing nicely into an established habitat. The perimeter is paved to allow children to safely take part in activities such as pond dipping.
  • The growing area is now set to see its second harvest. This year we have grown a wide range of vegetables including: runner beans, tomatoes, potatoes, courgettes, carrots, beetroot and lettuce along with many herbs. The area is planted, looked after, watered and harvested by the children.
  • The wildlife area is exactly that! A large area given over to wild flowers, grasses and a mini-beast hotel within a pile of rotting logs. We have further plans for this area to include a seating area to be used as a prayer garden. This will also double up as the meeting place for Forest School type activities.
