Pond takes pupils back to nature
YOUNGSTERS are getting back to nature, thanks to the creation of a pond and conservation area.
Winchcombe School pupils returned from the summer holidays to find a new pond.
Teachers wanted to reinstate the conservation area to assist with hands-on learning. The pond will be used for ecology lessons and to teach children on the impact of improving the environment.
Teacher Amanda Salisbury said: "We are really excited about the potential of this pond to teach the kids about conservation."

The pond, which is about 5m by 5m, has already been filled with lilies and fish are expected to be added soon. Year 10 and 11 pupils have also been planting trees around the pond.
BTEC science students will maintain the pond to make sure it stays in good shape.
Former student Leon Piercy of Leon Piercy Landscapes completed the pond reconstruction work.
