Rushden’s Tennyson Road Infant School have had part of a car park within their school grounds transformed into a nature and sensory garden.

The project funded by the National Lottery took 5 months to complete and was masterminded by teacher Amanda Brown.

Staff, governors, parents and children all worked together to plan, develop, build and plant in the nature and sensory garden.

The garden will be used by the pupils who are aged between 4 and 7 years old to support their learning of their natural environment.

Mayor of Rushden Councillor Kaye Rawlins cut the ribbon to officially open the school’s new garden for all to enjoy.

It is hoped the pupils’ knowledge will develop and grow as they tend to the transformed plot.

The school were helped to make their garden dream a reality with donations from Spendlove Contracting and www.gardenparadise.net.
