Welcome to our website! We hope you enjoy your visit.

Preparation for the RHS Tatton Flower Show started many months ago. The children from Class 4 have worked hard planning and creating their garden. They have grown plants from seeds, and nurtured their plants ready for the challenge they faced.

This year, the school competition was ‘Wild about wildlife’. Our class garden was based on the traditional story book ‘Bambi: a life in the woods.’  The back-drop of Tatton Hall, a home for the deer, seemed like a clear choice.

‘Twig Twisters’, a professional willow artist, visited to work with the children of Class 4 in the planning and making of 3-D sculptures for their garden. In keeping with the theme of the garden, children made a roe deer and butterflies out of willow all by themselves.

The result is amazing! The children from Year 4 have shown commitment to the task and real enthusiasm. We are so proud of their entry to this year’s Tatton Flower Show; well worth a visit!
