KING James's School in Almondbury is reducing its carbon footprint by making more use of its outside space.
The school’s new outdoor classroom is a bookable resource that is already being used across the school by a variety of departments.
While PE is traditionally taught outside in the summer months, the school is looking at ways in which the outdoors can be used more innovatively.
The English department currently use the classroom for reading, while RS use it for debate and discussion of a range of moral and ethical issues.
Science use the classroom to look at biodiversity while Maths use the number 12 (there are 12 tree trunk seats) and their place in a 360 degree circle for a variety of mathematical concepts.
Plans are underway to use the outdoor classroom as a theatre space for existing King James’s students and for those in its feeder schools.
