We have begun a crowdfunding campaign with the hope of getting the council’s backing for part of the funds to build an outdoor classroom which schools and families can use at their leisure. It will be a more structured space in the centre of the park where teachers can gather students to talk about what they see around them in the woodland. The woodland becomes the classroom, the seating area will be for sharing findings, sharing stories, learning from each other about what the children have seen and heard.
We hope to begin building by May 21st – Outdoor Classroom Day. We hope to have students from Manor Croft Academy come along and build it with us.
Transformers North have already donated their labour to the project and have begun the mammoth task of clearing the land. They have done a stellar job.
