Having this special outdoor classroom will help all the pupils at Anson to achieve and develop their confidence and self-esteem through hands-on experiences in a natural environment.
Learning outdoors will teach children to develop their communication, perseverance, problem solving and teamwork skills as well as gaining new knowledge about the great outdoors.
The outdoor classroom will provide lots of benefits such as:
- Habitats for our local wildlife such as the bird boxes and bug houses.
- Anson will be more sustainable as we can plant our own fruit and vegetables
- Anson’s children will learn to protect their environment so they can enjoy it for many years to come.
The children really can’t wait to get using the outdoor classroom and thank you to everyone that has made it possible.
Opening Our Outdoor Classroom:
On Friday 10th September Anson's Outdoor Classroom was officially opened by our former CEO Paul Lovern and New CEO Mrs Gethin.
During Phase 1 the groundwork took place to develop our vision of a calm, safe, outdoor space working with nature to provide a beautiful learning environment for our children, supporting mental health within a tranquil space in the fresh air.
During Phase 2 Planting beds to grow fruit and vegetables were built and bird boxes put up. We successfully enhanced our vision further with the ambitious development of our tree house which offers children a covered, elevated area for children to continue their learning. Children worked alongside a professional to develop our prayer area, we now have wonderful outdoor space for worship and reflection times.
