About Nature Garden
On regular afternoons throughout the year, the Nature Garden team meets to maintain the St Andrew’s Conservation Area (opposite the main playground).
Children are welcome to bring a parent/guardian for a couple of hours of pruning, cutting, raking and digging. It’s very therapeutic and refreshments are provided!
The Conservation Area is a mini-habitat that attracts all sorts of creepy crawlies, butterflies and perhaps the odd hedgehog! Year 2 even made a special bug hotel – they explored natural materials and made a collection of the resources that they thought would make good habitats, discussing why and how they might use them.
By looking after this area, the children at St Andrew’s can safely enjoy Forest School and hands-on wildlife lessons, a short walk from their classrooms.
Keep a look out on the website or for posters on the school gate advertising our next session – like the one below
