We have been working hard to develop our outdoor spaces.
We haves places where we can grow and experiment with growing. We have places where we can get closer to and study wildlife. We have spaces where we can play sport. We have places where we can play imaginatively. We have places where we can tell stories.
At Lakeside we think it is important that every pupil has the chance to take part in the design, planning and building of our spaces. This is why the whole school is coming together to think about a new type of space – a Reflective Garden.
Our Reflective Garden will be a space where children can go as a class or in small groups to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday school life, to think, reflect on an aspect of their learning, or just be inspired by the beauty of the environment we have created together. It will be a garden that celebrates unity.
We are taking our first steps in the design of a space which will continue to evolve over time.
Every pupil from Y1 to Y6 has had a chance to select their favourite images of features from an extensive bank of ideas. The ‘Happy Africa Club’ have put together their own Mood Board.
We will keep you updated.
