A Gloucestershire school which plans to celebrate its 25th anniversary by building a learning log cabin got a funding boost from our Thames Valley region.
We gave Fairford C of E Primary School £500 towards constructing the cabin in woodland in its grounds so that all pupils have a local opportunity to explore the great outdoors.
The woodland was named after the school’s first headteacher, Mr Watkins, so the community was keen to expand on how it is used.
Headteacher Julie Fellows said: “At Fairford Primary School, we are extremely fortunate to be surrounded by wonderful grounds with immense potential to develop outdoor learning.
“Giving children the opportunity to learn outdoors is vital to many aspects of their social and emotional development as well as nurturing awe and wonder about the wonderful world that we have to look after.”
Linden Homes Thames Valley managing director Peter Carpinelli said: “Getting children playing and learning about the great outdoors is a great idea, so we were very pleased to agree to contribute.”
