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?

  2. Hi Grade 2TM
    Thank you for visiting our blog and for leaving us some wonderful comments.
    It looks like you have been working hard it Term 3, brainstorming lots of great ideas for your new pond area. Tomorrow at our school it is School Pride Day. This is a day where everyone goes outside and does gardening and tidying up of the school grounds. We are also turning our old frog pond area into a Minibeast Garden! We cant wait!
    We look forward to seeing photos of your new pond area.
