Over the last few years, our local area has seen building projects on a massive scale. This has reduced natural habitats for many creatures that we take for granted, and their numbers are now in decline. A team of Key Stage 2 children felt very strongly that we should create a habitat in our school grounds that would attract bees, butterflies, birds and other creatures and have been busy designing a school nature garden.  This was the inspiration for our 'Snowdog' design, which has developed into our very own nature garden creation.
