OPEN air lessons are coming to a Huddersfield school after an outdoor learning area was created.
Volunteers have helped pupils at Bradley Junior School transform a section of playing fields into an outdoor classroom.
The school had already installed a canopy so pupils could read and have lessons outside.
Work has now taken place to create a garden with a pond and orchard.
The pond will be filled with plants to encourage wildlife and the children will help to lay bark on new pathways.
Teacher Pauline Bell said: “This is a really fantastic development for our school, which is helping us towards being a greener school.”
Lucy Smith, section manager at construction company Morgan Sindall Grontmij, which helped build the area, said: “It is very important for pupils to be able to get their hands dirty and get stuck into learning about subjects in a fun and engaging way.”
The project is part of a campaign by Yorkshire Water called One Million Green Fingers.
