Woodbank Primary School is bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.
Tesco have teamed up with Groundwork to launch the monthly funding scheme, which sees grants of £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to local outdoor community projects.
'We want to build an outdoor classroom that can be used all year round by our children but also the wider community. The classroom will be part of our Environment Zone-allowing our children to experience first-hand, practical learning outside. Children will be able to learn about the weather, the seasons, plants, trees, flowers, birds, insects etc. The classroom will allow us to deliver many aspects of the curriculum such as Art, DT, Maths and English. The classroom will help inspire ‘awe and wonder’ about the local community we live in'.
