Secret Garden

Welcome to our secret garden…Keep your eyes open and ears alert because you never know what you will find!

This is our most popular area for outdoor learning, with a large natural seating area, a potions kitchen, a fruit and vegetable plot and an abundance of wildlife. The secret garden is a valued part of our school and is integral for providing outdoor learning experiences and getting children outside of the classroom setting.

Foundation Stage have weekly forest schools sessions here, and this is the highlight of the week! Children have the freedom to explore, make potions, help grow the fruit and vegetables and search for wildlife in the midst of the garden.

Our secret garden has been lovingly tended to by our brilliant foundation stage staff along with the help of parents and grandparents who have donated, built and helped along the way. Made with all natural materials, in a natural environment, the garden is the perfect place to learn about nature and the world we live in. It allows children to get up-close and experience things that can’t be achieved in a classroom.
