Designing Our School Pond.

Our new school building has a new garden area.  Mrs. Stewart has allowed the Year 2 children to be responsible for the area.  We are now beginning to design our own school pond. 

Jeff, who is a parent at our school, is helping us to design the pond.  We brainstormed all the possiblities for our pond and what could live there.  Jeff helped us to think about the area and some plants that might help us attract insects and butterflies.  When we got back to class we categorised those things under the following headings:

man-made, natural materials, minibeasts, plants, animals

 We then set to work with our partners and began to design our pond.  Here are some designs and photos that show what we came up with.

Do you have any good ideas for our school pond area?
