The Nurture Project ran by STC would like to create an outdoor classroom for the primary children who have been permanently excluded.

by STC Nurture Project in Swindon, England, United Kingdom

The children who attend STC's Nurture Project have all been permanently excluded from mainstream school and often display low self-esteem, are disengaged from learning, and many struggle to socially connect with their peers. The Nurture approach is an inclusive education model that offers a range of opportunities for children to revisit early nurturing experiences alongside accessing the national curriculum. 

This year we hope to develop our Nurture Project further by creating an outdoor classroom that the pupils will love! Research shows that high-quality outdoor learning experiences are proven to help children develop reflective and inquisitive thinking along with problem-solving approaches in 'real' situations. The outdoor classroom also encourages the holistic development of children whilst promoting the development of resilience and adaptability skills. 

After an exciting brainstorming session with our pupils, the following items have been chosen as potential resources for our Outdoor Classroom, depending on how much we raise:

*PVC Greenhouse/ Vegetable Planter

*Mud Kitchen

*Spades, bricks, buckets, hard hats for Construction Area

*Sand/ water tray for Maths Area

*Sun shade sail/canopy (for the summer months)

*Garden storage shelves

*Arch planter 

*Planting soil

*Veg/ Flower seeds

*Musical instruments for sound area

If you have any of the following items available for donation, please contact us:

*Wood/ pallets/ play oven for mud kitchen

*Large rocks for fire pit

*Outdoor storage boxes

*Outdoor table

*Branches for Shelter Area

*Bricks for construction area

Let's make 'Outdoor Learning Resources for Disadvantaged Kids' happen
