Pupils dig deep for village garden

By timesecholife on in All News, Community News

YOUNGSTERS from a village primary school have been getting green-fingered for the community. Pupils from Werrington Primary School have been helping to plant new items in the Sensory Garden at the Werrington Library & Wellbeing Centre. David Shaw, Chairman of the library group said: “Funded by ASDA with the help of the Young Offenders Institute, the garden has now become well established with compost ready for the first sensory planting.

This planting was carried out by Year Three pupils at Werrington Primary School, led by Year Five Teacher and Forest School Lead, Kay Bolton.

David said: “Not only did the children plant the sensory flowers but they also learned about the different qualities of plants and then selected a suitable collection so the activity became an important learning exercise as part of the schools forestry initiative.

An added bonus was a geological lesson as they were taught about the age of the stones and rocks they found.”

David added that the children were a pure delight. He said: “Everyone at the library was full of praise for the youngsters and the way in which they conducted themselves and the enthusiasm they showed. We owe them a big thank you.”
