More Log Cabins Articles Two Worcestershire schools have benefited from the creation of a special outdoor learning area which comes complete with a new log cabin.
St Wulstan's Catholic Primary School and Lickhill Primary School in Stourport set up the joint "forest school" area following a Big Lottery Fund grant of £9,900, the Kidderminster Shuttle reported.
According to the newspaper, the funding was used to pay for the installation of the area, as well as waterproofs, tools and equipment such as binoculars.
The forest school, which includes trees and plants, the log cabin and a "fire circle" consisting of logs around a fire-making area, is situated in a field used by both schools and is designed to mimic the features of a natural forest while incorporating clear boundaries for the children's safety.
"It gives the children the chance to take risks in a safe environment," commented Hannah Harison-Denby, reception class teacher at St Wulstan's.
"It is very good for their holistic development, developing the whole child."
