Children at Ravensthorpe Infant and Nusery School have a new place to go wild.

The school has opened a ‘sensory garden’ for pupils to explore and investigate. The area will be used encourage interest in the outdoors and help develop science and maths skills.

Staff from Dewsbury B&Q were invited to the official opening after the store donated hundreds of pounds worth of flowers and outdoor equipment to the garden.

Deputy head teacher Joanne Clayton said: “The children have been involved in its development from the beginning and are really excited about it.”
