Outdoor Classroom

For the past two years we have been raising funds to build a wooden lodge surrounded by an environmental science area on our school field.

This area will be used as a base for lessons on the natural environment, plants and animals specific to the local area, climate change, and conserving nature.

This learning environment will be used to provide active, hands-on lessons, which will give our children an opportunity work together outside of the traditional classroom setting.

 

Thank you to our parents and community for the incredible donations received to enable us to reach our target for the Environment Lodge.  We will now make contact with the installation company to organise a date for next term (Autumn 2021).  I have been overwhelmed by how quickly our school and community have given their support to our Environment Lodge project.  I never imagined we would reach our target so quickly.

The donations received along with Greenham Trust matched funding have secured funding for the lodge.  We will continue fundraising for the environment area itself, to provide resources for the children to use as part of their class sessions.  The Good Exchange site has now stopped accepting donations as we have reached our target.  We would however ask for support through School Gateway to assist with the resources for the project.

Over the half term holidays a group of parents have organised a ‘Family Walk to Paris’ (virtual) to help raise funds for the environment area.  We will send out information on this later this week.

Thank you for all your help so far with so many generous donations.
