Living Classroom news November 2016

Picture 1

Our Living Classroom is a beautifully crafted wildlife garden which has been created with funds raised by FOSP. The garden includes a lovely pond with accessible pathways, and future plans include an orchard. Councillor Jane Boulton, Mayor of Richmond Borough, officially opened the Living Classroom at Stanley's annual May Fair on Sunday 17 May 2015. We were delighted to win a Silver Gilt award at the Richmond Borough in Bloom awards on Thursday 9 July 2015. Many congratulations to Naomi Johns, Molly Gartland and the FOSP team of volunteers- a fantastic achievement for the Living Classroom’s first year.

 

Get gardening!*

If you fancy getting your hands dirty with a bit of garden maintenance on Thursdays, please come along to one of our weekly gardening sessions from 14.00-15.00. We supply all the necessary tools, but you may want to bring your own gardening gloves. No expertise necessary and no need to pre-book; just meet us in the school office at 14.00 to sign-in. All welcome (including pre-school children under parent/ carer supervision)

 

Wild Fridays*

The Living Classroom is open to Stanley pupils for pond-dipping and nature activities on Fridays after school, 15.15-16.15. Children must be accompanied by an adult or carer.

 

* Get gardening and Wild Friday sessions will resume in spring term 2017
