People make places great. We all have a stake in the towns, villages and communities of Kirklees.
In the centre of the park there is an existing structure built in 1985 as a rose garden. We want to turn this circular structure into an open, outdoor classroom with 8 sleeper benches in the centre to seat a class full of students. Students will be able to spend time with their teachers in the woods, then return to the outdoor classroom to make notes, share ideas, or plan future visits. The space will be clean, clear and open to the public to use as well as local schools.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
This outdoor classroom will provide a space for outdoor learning. There are 3 primary schools on the hill on which Caulms Wood sits. These three schools have little to no green outdoor space. Their students - around 500 children, are restricted in their outdoor play. They can't climb trees, or see wildlife in its natural habitat - birds, squirrels, hedgehogs. This space will allow students to sit and enjoy nature in a structured space akin to a classroom. Just outside!
