New Outdoor Classroom

Saturday, January 22nd 2011

The new classroom building for school groups to use is now finished. This wooden shelter in the woods between the discovery trail and the moorland will be perfect for allowing school children to study the outdoors whatever the weather! It will be used as a 'science station' and a main focus will be learning about invertebrates as the children discover which minibeasts live in the log pile close by.

Woodland insects and bugs can be taken inside to be examined more closely out of the elements! The classroom is equipped with a table and benches and is linked to the main trails by a boardwalk.

I love your outdoor classroom. I am a teacher at a school in South Gloucestershire. We are looking into getting an outdoor classroom built in our school grounds, and I am curious to know who designed and built yours.
Please could you pass me the information at my email address above?
Thank you!
Helen Horsley
