New year - New changes
If you haven't noticed already our new school building is coming on well. We can already see the enormous grey frame with red netting for safety reasons ( to stop accidents). Also the crane is starting to pile the building material to the top floor.
These are the changes we noticed in the Autumn Term:
As you may have notice, many of our beautiful, gigantic trees have been cut down. However, do not panic it is all for a good reason and that is to allow the the big trucks to come in and out. Following our meeting with the Project Manager, we have discover that 14 more new trees will be planted once the builders have finished their work !
You may also be pleased to know, that most of the wood from the trees has been recycled. For instance, some of the wood was chipped and put into our woods, the larger logs are being used in our Forest School and some wood has been used for wood burners.
Many of us were sad to see our beloved adventure playground go as we have had fond memories playing on it. However, this was dismantled to make a path so the builder can access the field.
To our utter joy, we were delighted to see that an 'Climbing Wall' had been put up for our pleasure!!!!
At the end of Spring 1, the School Council had the pleasure of meeting up with the Project manager to ask him some curious questions.
Question-What happens to the soil you dig up?
Answer- It gets carted away and recycled. The top soil is used on golf courses whilst the deeper soil gets cleaned and then distributed across the country.
