Lions Club supports garden ‘make-over’

Posted on: May 9, 2014

Early Years and Foundation Stage have been working hard to give their garden area a much needed ‘make-over’. Pupils in keystage two have been getting involved by planting flowers and vegetables at a gardening club, which has been set up by Nursery assistant Mrs J, Speed. Nursery children and their families are also taking part in a ‘make a scarecrow’ competition.  This week Mrs H. Westrup, a teacher at the academy, presented staff and children with a cheque for £100, on behalf of The Great Yarmouth Lions Club, for which she is the president.  This kind donation will help considerably to improve the EYFS garden area.

 Mrs J. Speed, nursery assistant, said “We really appreciate the Lion Club’s kind generosity and the money is going towards creating sensory areas within the EYFS garden. The garden area is an important way for the children to develop their learning about the environment and we are keen to make it into an appealing place to be. We are also able to now create our “Lion’s Den”, which is an igloo made from hoops and covered in foliage in which the children can enjoy stories, relaxing and talking peacefully with their friends away from the busy playground.”
