Leaf Shelter

The forward thinking headteacher of this school commissioned this outdoor classroom in the shape of a leaf.

It provides seating for one class including a wheelchair user and the teacher.

The leaf design and the animal feet were developed in the classroom with Jason Thomson and input from the pupils.

There are green glass caterpillars eating the roof!
