New garden at Swaffield Primary School
Funded by a grant from Wandsworth and some really whole-hearted support from school staff, we helped to create an entirely new outdoor space. We have been using this to run training sessions for teachers and workshops for Swaffield children focusing on the enjoyment of planting (mostly) vegetables and eating them!
Continuing project at Floreat Wandsworth
A relatively new primary school, Floreat benefits from an unusually large outdoor space. think outside has run both Forest School sessions and normal outdoor learning classes for children there and continues to be responsible for maintenance of the gardens. We hope to run further Forest School workshops for the school going forward.
Eco Warriors at Rutherford House
The continuation of one of think outside's earliest projects (for which we helped the school secure a grant from the Mayor of London), we have led the re-development of an underused outdoor space, run its weekly after-school "Eco Warriors" clubs for children and overseen community gardening sessions at weekends. We are also responsible for garden maintenance.
Seasons and Mathematics at Fircroft Primary
using Davis weather station exploring natural and man-made patterns!
A new concept for 2019/2020, supported by a grant from Tesco's Bags of Help Scheme. We will run termly sessions for Year 5 children exploring and explaining seasonal changes and linking what we are doing to the KS2 mathematics curriculum. All helped by a brand new weather station which the children thoroughly enjoy!
