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.
We are thrilled to announce that we have received £2,000 from the Gregg’s Foundation towards our fantastic Woodlands Project.
The activities we are planning to take place with the aid of this grant will be “traditional woodland crafts.” Students will be able to really get stuck in with this project...
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.
Adventure Service Challenge is a three-fold scheme of activity for young people aged 8 to 14 years and beyond.
The ASC scheme is designed to prepare young people for the Duke of Edinburgh's Award. In fact, the DofE Award HQ recommends ASC for that purpose.
Woodlands Academy students have been taking part...
Most of the ground work has now been finalised and a fully circular wood chipped path has been completed around the woodland. This includes a substantial bridge over the boggy part with hard-standing at one end for ease of access.
Wood chopping for the fire pit has also proved a great success, with a campfire cooking area being the result, and marshmallows being toasted and enjoyed by all!
