Pupils come to their senses in new garden
New garden opened
CHILDREN can explore their senses at a new garden at a village school.
The Reed first school sensory garden was opened by North East Herts MP Oliver Heald on Saturday.
Alison Thomas, the school’s head teacher, said: “The garden is designed so that visitors can test all their senses, such as touch, sight, and smell.
“We wanted to undertake a community project at the school, and the garden we’ve come up with should be suitable for everyone to visit, from toddlers to the elderly.”
