Year 3 Lottery Fund Garden Design.

Year 3 went to the park last week for a very special reason. They have been asked to help with the second Heritage Lottery bid for the renovation of the Hurst Grange Coach House and surrounding garden.

Despite the rather damp weather, the children were enthusiastic to find out more about the project and the part the school will play in the bid for further funds to create a wildlife garden for visitors to enjoy once the buildings have been renovated. They were impressed by the size of the plot, which gives scope for a huge amount of creativity. We then spent the afternoon bug hunting in the diverse habitats of the Hurst Grange Park. Then it was back to school to create a  portfolio to showcase our ideas. Watch this space!
