New planters outside the year 5 and 6 classrooms will replace the existing planters; these are slowly collapsing... These planters will have more seating, as well as a small section for growing plants. Fencing around the Sensory Garden will be erected in the Easter Holidays.
Last year (2015-2016) we funded every class with £100 and an equal share of the "Cake-a-licious" fundraising money; this meant we gave each year group £300 to spend on activities/resources/experiences for the children. This is how the money was spent:
The Outdoor Classroom:
Work on our new outdoor classroom is now COMPLETE. This project, fully funded by the PTFA, provides a covered space with seating for a class. It forms part of the plans for the continued development of the Sensory Garden.

Sensory Garden Artwork:
As part of the on-going work in the Sensory Garden, the PTFA has contributed funding towards artwork for the wall. Groups of children have worked alongside local artist (and parent) Kath Hadden to produce a series of 4 pieces of art on the theme of local landscapes.
During 2014-2015 we also gave each year group £300 to spend. Some of ways the money was spent included:
