Merlins and Ospreys get wild to create an Outdoor Reading Garden!

Merlins and Ospreys bring the Amazon Rainforest to our school!


To celebrate the end of Our Green Planet topic, children from Merlins and Ospreys have given the Millennium garden a huge makeover and so much more!   The children had a vision of what they wanted to achieve; which was to bring the Amazon Rainforest into our school.  Children had expressed a wish to be able to read outside at break times and lunchtimes, but the only area available was our disused, run-down Millennium garden.


The children started the project, having studied the Amazon Rainforest, by designing their ideal garden. Next, they needed to make their vision come true and so needed to acquire funding and offers of help and equipment from our PTA, parents and local companies.  A great time was spent in purchasing the resources for our project.


The final and the busiest stage of our Enterprise project was making the vision come true.  All this week, parents, grandparents, aunties, cousins and carers were busy working with the children in the garden.


The children want to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in making this happen. We can’t wait to take our books in to read!

Please look at our photos as they certainly tell a story of their own!
