In the summer term 2014 we had two additions to our environment. 5th class created a butterfly garden, after having researching what plants would attract the butterflies and bees. It blossomed fabulously over the summer and while there were not as many butterflies around as we had expected, there were thousands of bees searching for the nectar the plants produced. 2nd class had also created a wild flower garden which also attracted the bees.

We had a garden created for us around the new after-school care building because one of our parents, Joan Mellon, created a garden for the garden show BLOOM. We organised the transport of over 250 plants to the school and spent every evening in June, planting the new plants. We hope that this new garden will also work to create a fabulous environment for all kinds of bees and insects, and help to increase our biodiversity.
