Lincoln Minster School wins top platinum award for Lincolnshire
Lincoln Minster School has been awarded a prestigious platinum award by the Woodland Trust for getting involved in green activities including tree planting, visiting a local woodland, reducing carbon emissions and being a woodland ambassador.
The Green Tree Schools initiative, offers the opportunity to bring the great outdoors, wildlife and green issues into the classroom.
The Pre-Preparatory school won the awards for participating in green activities, both in and out of the classroom. Pupils made bug hotels and a hedgehog house in their designated Outdoor Learning area, visited local Chambers Wood, worked on a Wild Trails Project identifying animals and grouping them together, and joined in various other Woodland Trust activities.
Becky Skelton, Outdoor Learning Lead at the school, said:
“We have thoroughly enjoyed all of the activities. The children have been really motivated and enthusiastic, especially knowing the end goal was to achieve the platinum award. They particularly enjoyed being able to photograph our school grounds and nature from different perspectives.... a birds eye view and a bugs eye view being particular favourites.”
The Woodland Trust’s vision is for a UK rich in native woods and trees for people and wildlife. The charity is dedicated to creating new woodland with help from communities and schools, as well as protecting and restoring ancient woodland for future generations to cherish.
