FOUNDATION stage pupils have created a garden in their school grounds.

The nursery and reception children at Keighley St Andrew's Primary School have transformed a small patch of grass, just off the playground.

A cherry tree, shrubs and perennials have been planted, and a bird feeder and nesting boxes installed to help attract wildlife.

"We also purchased some deep raised beds for the surfaced area – these currently hold perennials and annuals but next year we hope to plant lots of vegetables to encourage healthy eating as well as gardening," said the school's business manager Gill Higham, who performed the official opening at a garden party held to celebrate the occasion.

The event also included a bouncy castle and giant play items, and parents were invited to attend.
