As you may be aware we are working on developing our outside spaces so that children have a nicer environment to learn in. Today we have begun working with the fantastic volunteers from River Ribble Trust, to plant all of the trees and bushes to enhance our site.
As a special school with children with wide ranges of physical and learning disabilities, our children do not always find it easy to access the wild outdoors - so we are hoping to create accessible, but wild areas in our grounds.
The children will benefit from learning how trees grow, the different types of trees and shrubs that we can enjoy and will make use of leaves, sticks and reeds to create art and craft work.
The team from River Ribble Trust spent all day on Tuesday 15th March preparing the site ready for the planting - you can read all about it in their article on their Facebook page.
The weather was kind to us, so the rain stayed away and groups of children, staff and the volunteers were able to dig and plants lots of new trees which we hope to care for and grow into our own forest!
