We are thrilled that we have successfully applied for some of our Year 5 children to take part in the Generation Green programme.
Generation Green is a 16-month funded project that aims to connect young people to nature - many for the first time – and to cultivate a sense of care for the natural environment.
For some of our Year 5 (as well as Mr Booth, Mrs Greene and Mrs Burton) this means taking part in a two-day "Connecting to Nature" residential on 1st and 2nd November. This is designed to to connect our children to the natural environment, helping them learn the steps to nature connectiveness (see attached image).
We hope that they have a wonderful time - experiencing and connecting with nature!
Generation Green is the first project to be delivered by the Access Unlimited coalition. The coalition comprises YHA (England & Wales) – who are hosting the project on behalf of the partners – The Outward Bound Trust, Scouts, Girlguiding, Field Studies Council and the 10 English National Parks.
"Young people from deprived areas, BAME groups and disadvantaged backgrounds have fewer opportunities to experience nature and the outdoors at an early age, affecting their engagement with the natural environment in later life."
