The story so far
As part of our learning about Japan, Otter class discovered lots of things about Japanese Gardens. Each child designed their very own garden. and we decided to ask if we might be able to make our own real life garden in the school grounds.
We presented our ideas to Miss Charnock and explained why we thought making a garden would add so much to our learning experience. The children were so happy when she said YES!
We applied for a grant from The Japanese Society who provide small grants for projects around the country and were successful.
Otter class are now fundraising to match the grant money by doing chores at home and we have had some very generous pledges for materials aswell as sponsorship! Thank you to everyone and watch this space for news about how our plans are progressing.
Update June 2021:
Well a lot of things have happened since I last wrote. Our fundraising has hit an amazing £1465! Which is fantastic and I am excited to say we have now started to construct our Japanese Garden!
I will post some photos of the work in progress soon!
