A wonderful log cabin-style classroom has been constructed in the Daneshill woods to act as a base from which to explore the extensive woodland and also as an inspirational learning space. Heated by a wood burner and powered by solar panels, this eco space helps the children to connect with nature and thrive outside of the classroom setting.
Each year group from Year 3 to Year 7 will spend Outdoor Learning sessions in the woods to explore different areas and come up with ideas for enjoying spending more time there. This should develop a sense of belonging and responsibility, both of which are key to mental well-being – for both the children and the teachers! Additionally, classes and groups of children will also be using both the log cabin and the woods for inspiring sessions to enhance the delivery of the curriculum.
