Winslow Church of England School opened its new sensory garden on Friday April 26.

The garden, which is used as a learning space and a relaxation area is divided into five sections.

Sections focus on sound, sight, taste, texture and smell and each section is looked after by a particular year group.

The school’s assistant head Katie Epps said: “The pupils will then plant things and do activities in their part of the garden related to the sense they are focusing on.”
