The Woodland Trust reward schools for completing environmental projects and encouraging outdoor learning. Their award is a fantastic way to enhance the school's green credentials while inspiring pupils about woods and trees.

Activities

There are a variety of hands-on, educational activities pupils can do. They are designed to encourage  pupils to explore the natural world around them and use their imaginations. They include:

  • planting trees
  • visiting your local wood
  • using words and images to share your woodland experience
  • exploring different viewpoints through photography
  • becoming a Woodland Ambassador

Our beautiful local woods are: Higher and Lower Holmes House Woods

The woodlands are situated on the bottom of an attractive,steep-sided valley. A large stream forms the northern boundary to both Higher and Lower Holme House Woods. Just to the north of the wood is a Wood Mill dating back to the early 19th century.
 
Holme House Woods are recorded as Ancient Woodland by English Nature.
