Over the course of this year, we have been undertaking a renovation of our Jubilee Garden in preparation for Wheatcroft's Golden Jubilee year.
The work started last Autumn term with a Year 6 Gardening Gang, families and staff who cleared a lot of the overgrown plants and trees. In May this year, the new planting was done and water feature installed. The PTA have kindly agreed to pay for the beautiful water feature.
One of the last things to be done was the painting of the seating area which Class 4 have done today. Miss Andrews' class designed some flowers in sketch books and then painted the seat.
We are still hoping to add some more seating and plants next year.
This afternoon, to start our Golden Jubilee celebrations, former staff from Wheatcroft visited, some of whom were there for the Silver Jubilee of the school 25 years ago. The newly renovated garden was formally opened by former Deputy Head Mr Wright along with the Year 6 Gardening Gang who have done a lot of work in the garden over the year.
It was a lovely celebration which all the former staff, current pupils and staff really enjoyed.
