We have a bold vision for our sensory and community garden which will include the following features **Sensory Garden– sensory features throughout the garden that will have smell, touch and visual elements to excite the senses of our students with special needs (SEN) **Raised planter beds with permanent and seasonal fruit and vegetables which can be used in our kitchens for school meals or sold by our students to our community to raise extra funds for the school **Garden wall exhibition highlighting how planets can feature in urban environments around Newham borough **Seating areas for students to take in the surroundings during break times **Greenhouse, solar panels and mini wind turbines to teach students about climate systems and renewable energy **Tools, equipment and shed to maintain and house garden accessories
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Planting a garden requires teamwork, patience, and perseverance. Caring for a living thing, watching it grow and thrive, and reaping the harvest teaches respect, pride, and commitment. Although these skills are rarely tested, or recorded, these are the lessons that will stick with students throughout their lifetime Below are just some of the ways in which a school garden will benefit our students, from new skills to improved academic performance: • Physical activity. • Responsibility and independence. • Self-confidence. • Teamwork and communication. • Literacy, numeracy and biology. • Healthy lifestyles. • Environmental awareness. Finally we believe that If the UK is to reach its bold climate change targets we want to be teaching the leaders of tomorrow at School21 and a school garden will help us achieve that ambition
