Constructing for outdoor learning

This school grounds construction project gives primary pupils the opportunity to learn new skills at the same time as creating a new feature for their grounds.

Project Details

Funded by the John Laing Charitable Trust we work with eight schools each year on a project that gives children a chance to make a difference in their own school grounds.

Working with one of our accredited network, pupils learn how to read plans and how to follow instructions as well as gaining the constructions skills needed to create a wooden structure in their school grounds such as a story-telling chair or a bug hotel.

Closely linked to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects, pupils who might struggle in a classroom see those subjects brought to life outside.
