Story by Katie Hobson

Oasis Academy in Fir Vale are motivating student’s minds and inspiring active learners who prefer to work outdoors by installing new garden equipment over the half term holiday. The pupils will now be able to plant crops of vegetables and fruits and nurture them to grow.

Additional work on a ‘bug house’ has also begun so that the children can learn about insects. The outdoor classroom will allow pupils to get their hands dirty and plant the school’s first ever crops of carrots, onions, potatoes and different fruit plants. If that wasn’t enough for the nature loving pupils, the school also has plans to create log stump seating.

The head teacher, Mrs Round, considers an outdoor environment for students essential as many students work best being active outdoors. The new lessons are said to be improving student’s attitude to learning with many children already developing green fingers!
