Class 10 - Developing an Outdoor Classroom and opportunities for children to learn about sustainability
To improve the Outdoor Learning Opportunities for our children, we have developed an Outdoor Investigative Classroom (class 10). We have introduced growing beds for vegetables and fruit and a new 'Insect Hotel' which will encourage bugs and beasties into the area. A pond has been developed and equipped with an underwater pond camera so the children will be able to get a really close up view of 'pond life'. The tadpoles are thriving as well as pond snails. Soon we hope to introduce newts. We would warmly welcome any support from Parents or within the wider community to help us with this exciting project. Our warmest thanks so far go to Phil Lewis and Mike Graham from the Bug House at Liverpool Museum and to Mark McKnight, the Community Gardener, and to Gradening Club for looking after the area.
