Update on sensory garden

Recently our sensory garden has developed alot. The garden is a place where students can relax and enjoy a sunnny day, even when its raining the garden is still beautiful as the rain really benefits the plants giving them all the nutrition they need to survive. There is a palm tree in our garden which really stands out and looks as if we are on a tropical beach.We have a birdcam in the sensory garden which helps us get closer to birds.Sometimes we are lucky enough to catch beautiful; coloured birds. We also have some herbs and vegtables in our garden which blossom it with beautiful fragrances, we also have posters located around the garden which help us identify different kinds of birds which is really fun and helpful.We hope that you enjoyed our blog and we hope that you will be lucky enough to visit us one day.

Spring Watch!

The children in our school enjoy bird watching. We have lots of posters located around our sensory garden to help young children recognize our visitors. Some children like to find out more about different birds, their habitats and what type of food they enjoy.

Year 4 children have recently been planting daffodils as a sign of new life and a fresh start. Each of the many flowers our garden holds are shooting up towards the sun.

Spring is coming!

In our sensory garden we are preparing for spring.Children from younger classes have been planting daffodils, vegetables like:carrots, potatoes and even herbs which produce a lovely scent that is carried round the garden by the brief wind.The sun is starting to get warmer with the upcoming days and we hope it stays like  that as this helps our school community to invite more visitors such as a recent visit from a wild fox, squirells  climbing fences for food we provide them with and our most known   and loved visitors bluebirds, blue tits and even blackbirds!. we cant wait to see the garden in bloom.

Fun at the Welsh Harp

It has been an exciting first part of term with all year 5 classes participating in Brent Nature Network activities. This week it was the turn of 5S to spend the day making nature movies at the Welsh Harp Environmental Education Centre (WHEEC)


The sun was shining and we were ready to get exploring the woodland habitat and doing some research ready for our video reports. Harry took us around the woodland habitat and we asked loads of questions about the planst and animals that live in the woods at the Welsh Harp in Brent. Even a dead tree is useful in nature.
