Outdoor Learning

Over the last few years the pupils, staff, parents and wider community have been involved in a range of projects, to improve our extensive school grounds. We recognise the importance of outdoor learning and how the curriculum can be enhanced through the involvement of practical activities. Take a look at the photos above to see some of the activities that we have been involved with, including growing fruit and vegetables in our allotments, building an eco-friendly plastic bottle greenhouse, harvesting honey from our bee hives and sculpting wooden toadstools with local sculptor, Thompson Dagnall. In 2015 Manor Road’s contribution to outdoor learning was recognised by the North West Britain in Bloom Campaign, when we gained an ‘Environmental Award’ and were also the winner of the Seedley and Langworthy in Bloom Outstanding School Trophy. We were also delighted to win the School Garden of the Year competition, organised by Lancashire Life and sponsored by multi award winning local gardener, John Foley. Well done to everyone for all your hard work.
