Pupils get MORE! from the great outdoors
Pupils at Cranham Primary School have been learning about creating a sustainable environment in a recently transformed outdoor learning area funded by Sanctuary Homes’ MORE! programme.
The grounds at Cranham Primary School in Warndon are now zoned neatly with new fencing and a separate woodland area for pupils to enjoy different aspects of nature during their forest school lessons.
The project has been delivered through Sanctuary’s MORE! programme, which supports local community projects in places where it is building new homes.
Ten-year-old Kara said: “This new area means that we will be able to encourage insects, birds and small animals onto our school grounds. We might even be able to make bird boxes and areas for hedgehogs to nest!”
Cranham headteacher, Nick Cale, commented: “I’m really pleased to see all of the children enjoying the great outdoors. Learning outdoors really enhances our curriculum and it gives the children opportunities to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the world.”
