Rose Hill Revisited
It seems to us only yesterday that we helped our friends at Rose Hill Primary School build a Forest School; a natural learning environment to encourage children to appreciate, learn from and care about the natural world around them.
And yet, six months after establishing this little piece of nature we received some very welcome news from Emma Hood, the school’s outdoor learning coordinator. We understand that everything is going really well, and the children are enjoying their space and are taking good care of it. In Emma’s own words, “The site looks absolutely beautiful at the moment and the children are loving it …”. We couldn’t be prouder and very much hope it will benefit the school for generations to come.
To read more about the Forest School and those who care for it in, take a look at Rose Hill News, which featured it recently here. Our feature photo is credited to this publication.
Nicholsons worked with a number of friends to deliver the Forest School, including the Berkeley Reafforestation Trust who provided the grant for the plants, KJN who donated machinery and operators, Stone World who donated boulders for the play area, World of Water who donated a pond liner and to Taplins Plant Hire who donated welfare facilities for the staff.
