    Urban Tropicana comes to Grange!

    This week, we have been very lucky to have been given some
    beautiful house plants from local plant shop Urban Tropicana on
    Northfields Avenue. https://www.urbantropicana.co.uk/

    The plants will help us bring nature into our classrooms - they are quite
    stunning! There has been a recent boom in house plant buying and
    research has been carried out into their benefits.
    ‘’Biophilic design” has been one of the big buzz phrases in the
    UK office sector. Biophilia is essentially about our desire to
    commune with nature.

    Having plants in school can also reduce the number of absences/sick days that children have.
    Introducing plants to classrooms can not only boost air quality
    and improve mood but may also help learning to flourish.
    With this in mind, we would like to ask for donations of house
    plants and plant pots to enhance our learning environments.

    The sort of plants we are looking for need to be low maintenance,
    such as Snake plants, succulents or ZZ’s. So, if you know of a
    company that has plants going spare (or in need of some TLC) or
    if you have plants you would like to donate to the school, please
    let us know.


    We are really looking forward to creating some urban classroom
    jungles!
