Cedar Lodge for Connor Downs School

In May 2015 £6360.60 was been awarded to The Friends of Connor Downs School for the purchase of a cedar lodge and planters as part of their ‘Cultivating Futures’ project.

The Cedar Lodge is an outdoor classroom which is used by not only Connor Downs School but also the Sandcastles Pre-School group and other local community groups.

This new classroom has enabled children to really benefit from working in the outdoor environment and gives a multi-sensory approach to learning.

Below are some of the quotes from users:

“It is more fun learning outside!” – Liam, pupil

“We can make anything we want” – Kacey, pupil

“This learning zone gives an additional aspect to the teaching of subjects, it allows you to mix the outdoors and indoors seamlessly” – Mr B, teacher
