Thanks to #GreenerwithGreggs our woodland craft acitivites project began in June, making and installing four pole lathes for students to demonstrate their craft skills in a sustainable work environment.
Woodlands Academy students and staff are now eagerly looking forward to taking delivery of our new blacksmiths forge for its inclusion in our exciting range of woodland craft projects.
The forge area is planned to enable our students to turn scrap metal into interesting craft items. (Planned appearance shown to the right).
Pupils from Woodlands Academy have just returned from a photographic adventure to Hadrian’s Wall, Northumberland.
We travelled up to Northumberland and stayed at ‘The Sill’ which is a newly constructed Youth Hostel costing nearly fifteen million pounds.
As you can imagine the accommodation was fantastic!
This will enhance the pupils NCFE Level 1 photography portfolio, along with learning how a professional landscape photographer works in the field.
The Edina Trust have awarded Woodlands Academy £500 for their fantastic, forward thinking, ‘Natural Energy’ project.
Students and staff at Woodlands Academy have spent the last 2 years clearing and transforming a disused wooded area into a fantastic educational woodland environment.
Thanks to The Edina Trust, we have been able to purchase a Wind Turbine and can’t wait to get it installed so that pupils can engage in this fabulous environment, using natural energy.
Year 7 students have created their own Woodlands TV channel. They have written scripts, directed and filmed this fun pilot channel which is full of topical news and items important to them. Please have a watch, it's very good and very funny too!
We would like to thank Lincoln Film & Television School for all their support with this project.
