GMS Outdoor Classroom: Vote in Tesco

GMS Outdoor Classroom: Vote in Tesco

Excitedly, Tesco have selected GMS as a recipient of their  project voting scheme: TescoBagsofHelp Grant Scheme. In May and June Tesco customers can choose to vote for an Outside Classroom at GMS.

Everyone who shops in Tesco has the chance to vote for our project at the doors of the stores listed below. Every time customers shop they can collect a token from the cashier and post it in the voting box of their favoured project. Voting starts on Wednesday 1st May 2019 and ends on Sunday 30th June 2019. GMS will be notified of the result at the end of July 2019, when the amount of funding will be announced.

The project with the highest number of votes across the region will receive £4,000 (or the amount that was requested up to this value), the second placed project £2,000 (or the amount that was requested up to this value), and the third placed project £1,000.

Each store has a finite number of tokens and Tesco must ensure that these stay in circulation at all times and that the current projects secure the maximum number of votes. Listed below are the stores offering the chance to vote for the GMS project. We ask that readers of the website share this information and urge family, friends and the wider community to support this chance to improve the facilities for the students of GMS.

Additional Information.

The Outdoor Classroom will provide a learning space for subjects such as science, music and drama to enhance the knowledge, understanding and experiences of students. Learning outside the classroom supports the development of healthy and active lifestyles by offering children opportunities for physical activity, freedom and movement, and promoting a sense of well-being. Learning outside the classroom gives children contact with the natural world and offers them experiences that are unique to outdoors, such as direct contact with the weather and the seasons. Learning outside also helps children to understand and respect nature, the environment and the interdependence of humans, animals, plants, and lifecycles.

Students will be encouraged to engage with problem-solving skills that nurtures their creativity, as well as providing rich opportunities for their developing imagination, inventiveness and resourcefulness.

GMS believe all people, but children in particular, need an outdoor environment that provides space, both upwards and outwards, because many learn best through active movement. An outdoor space offers a place to explore, experiment in, be active and healthy in. Learning that flows seamlessly between indoors and outdoors makes the most efficient use of resources and builds on interests and enthusiasms.

Everyone who has taken children outside on a regular basis sees the enjoyment, sense of wonder and excitement that is generated when actively engaged with their environment.

The proposed outdoor learning classroom and the area surrounding it will be available to other community organisations like youth, church and community groups, which use the school’s facilities throughout the year; it is important to GMS that a wider group of children, young people and adults benefit from the facility, even if they are not students of Great Marlow School.
