Our wildlife garden is now ready for action! The willow is already starting to grow around the willow tunnel and planters are ready for the first signs of Spring when we can start planting our fruit and vegetables. The bug hotels are already housing some minibeasts upon close inspection and the poly tunnel is ready for classes!
We can't wait for the children to start to really get to use the garden as part of life at Lane End. We know that they will have so many enriching experiences from it ( and hopefully some tasty food too!)
This year at Lane End we are developing a wildlife garden. Children will access this space for many different outdoor learning opportunities such as growing, planting and measuring in maths and science. The opportunities are endless!!!!
The children are so excited for their garden and can't wait for it to be finished, so they can start using it. Here are some pictures of the development in progress. Keep checking back regularly to see the development as it happens.
Our first whole school outdoor project was den building day. A group of children build a 'Lane End Den' with some outdoor survival experts, Andy and Paul. They worked collaboratively to build the den, followed by a much deserved cup of hot chocolate, made outside on the camping stove. We have some budding outdoor explorers at Lane End!
Nursery came and enjoyed their story in our Lane End Den and some we inspired to try making their own den .
