Host of the television programme Art Attack helped Felsted School students create a garden to replace one which had been destroyed in a storm.
The garden, which the younger pupils have used since the start of the autumn term, includes fairy houses, a hotel for bugs, toadstool stepping stones and play stations made from wire reels, personalised by reception and Year 2 students.
TV host Lloyd Warbey helped students plan the zones in the garden and it was opened in July by now retired deputy head teacher Tristan Searle, who taught at the school for 33 years.
The original garden was destroyed last year in a storm.
Pre-prep teacher Nicky Searle said: “The garden is a great opportunity for calm play in an inspiring environment, promoting positive wellbeing for our children.
“It has helped encourage independence, as the children contributed to building the environment, recognising that their ideas have been heard.”
