GREEN-fingered pupils from a Gorleston middle school have been getting back to nature working on a series of gardening projects.

Children at Cliff Park Middle School have been busy since September last year creating a gardening club to improve children's skills.

Pupils in the club have planted flowers, strawberries, potatoes, herbs, cacti and even Venus fly traps. And a selection of children designed and made bird baths using sand and cement, which are now in use around the school.

Various gardens have been created around the school including a pond, now used to see tadpoles and toads.

A new conservation area is used avidly to develop the children's knowledge of habitats and life cycles.
