JUST before youngsters at All Saints School in Sidmouth broke up for their summer holidays, they were treated to a summer fete and officially opened their new garden.
The children have been involved in the 'wildlife area' for quite some time now and last week was devoted to a 'Go Wild' project exploring biodiversity.
The week kicked off with a 'Go Wild' assembly and the pupils took part in various activities throughout the project, including making nectar jars, windchimes and calendars.
Teacher Lisa Rosam said: "An action packed but fun filled week that the children really enjoyed and learned a lot from.
"At the end of the week the Year 2 leavers' service reported on the development of the wild area from start to finish in the style of Allan Ahlbergs funny bones series.
"They danced to 'The dance of the Bumblebee', sang songs and recited minibeasts poems to parents.
"The whole week was supported by parents and members of the community who helped the children planting and making everything."
The summer fete was a success and well attended.
