Across the last couple of weeks, we have been busy consulting groups who have an interest with this project including children, staff and other professionals. Year’s 4, 5 and 6 were invited to the hall with Mrs Cotterill to work on developing their own ideas and questions they might have regarding the school developing their own bio-diversity area. This really got the children thinking and excited at the prospect of having their ideas listened to. As a school, we are choosing to progress and develop our outdoor learning. Our aim is for all children in the school to have access to this marvellous opportunity.
We have been busy approaching Professional organisations to assist with planning and designing. We are also looking into funding grants to aid the development. Members of staff and FOBs will be visiting other schools in Cornwall who have created their own Bio-Diversity area and looking at how they have developed the area and incorporated it into the school environment.
We will be Inviting parents, families and the community to contribute ideas and time to help develop. We already have a donation of 120 trees coming at the beginning of March to begin process.
