Creative Craft Studies
The installation of the new pole lathes at the Academy has gone down a storm with the year 9 students!
They are now using the lathes to create their own craft items. These items will go towards their qualifications in creative craft studies.
By half term we are hoping to take delivery and install our new charcoal stove so the students can make own own charcoal for the new forge!
Keep up with our progress here:
You will have read about our fantastic funding from The Greggs Foundation towards our woodland project.
Well work has been well under way making and installing the four pole lathes in our schools woodland area. These pole lathes will enable our students to demonstrate their craft skills in a sustainable work environment.
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.
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!
