Woodland – Grand Opening
12th July 2017
After many months of work, the Abbey Hill Woodland was officially opened this term.
The morning was spent with the Team Building group trying out some team challenges, building shelters, lighting the fire and preparing some food for lunch.
At lunchtime some of the Academy’s Directors, SLT members, and representatives from Shaw Trust visited the woodland for a look round, and to try some of the food that had been prepared. The menu included hot dogs, flat bread prepared on the fire served with tomato and basil (from the garden), wild garlic soup, and for the brave, nettle tea.
The new woodland ‘classroom’ will offer opportunities for students throughout the academy, covering all aspects of the curriculum.
