Welcome to Mersey Park’s Outdoor Classroom


School has developed an outdoor classroom for use by all members of our school, to take their lessons outdoors and see learning from a different perspective.

This grassed area currently has six mature trees, including beech and oak and still retains the original path and old sandstone wall. So far we have made a fire circle) and planted willow whips. The Eco Team planted the willow to form it into a tunnel as it grows and also a willow wall, which will provide sticks for weaving and other crafts.

To shelter the area, we will be planting beech hedging, with further planting throughout the next couple of years. Other projects have included using recycled materials, such as pallets and decking, to make planters, compost bins and seating and creating a wildlife pond. Our Eco Team do regular litter picks and recently helped spread wood chips in the meeting circle.

Eco Team Update.

Our new outdoor classroom. The team set about surveying the area this afternoon, measuring the perimeter, length and width and identifying the six mature trees we have within the area.



Eco Team Update.

We like our new fire circle! We gave our outdoor classroom a good litter pick and we’ve been asked for ideas to add to the area. Next up – we need to plant a willow tunnel and make some compost bins for all the leaves.

Thank you to our older members of the team for helping to plant our willow tunnel this morning.
