Mrs Davison’s Summer School Challenge

Your challenge is to help to design a Peace Garden for school.  The garden will be built behind the domes.  Here is a plan of where the garden will be.

 

 

Watch the video that Mrs Ayres and Mr Oldfield kindly made to show you what is already there.

When designing your garden, please think about:

  • What brings you peace? 
  • What helps you to relax and make you feel good inside?
  • What sounds do you like to hear?
  • What smells do you like to smell?
  • What do you like to feel with your hands or under your feet?
  • What position do you like to be in?  Do you like to sit or lie down?  Maybe you like to walk around?
  • What do you like to looks at?  Do different colours make you feel different?
  • How can we make our garden so we can use it in all seasons and in all weathers?

Use the internet to research different varieties of plants, materials that can be used and garden designs to help you with your ideas.

With an adult, visit parks, gardens and if possible, garden centres as part of your research.
