Friends of Ponthir School Community Fund

We need your support to win a grant from the Aviva Community Fund.

Studies show that children are better at identifying Pokémon characters than real animals and plants. If we are successful in winning this grant, it will go towards a complete regeneration of the outdoor spaces in our wonderful school. Our new outdoor shelters will have poems etched into the wood with pictures, spyholes and digital technology to encourage our children to engage and interact with the natural world around them.

Our aim is to have an alphabet trail around the the school which the children will be encouraged to follow – identifying the animals and plants located nearby. They will be encouraged to develop their listening skills as they stop to listen for bird song.

At two points on the trail we will locate shelters for the children to stop, observe and read the poems about the wildlife they spotted on the trail. In these areas the children will be encouraged to write their own responses to the poems – their very own writer’s shed.

We can only be successful with your help and votes! If we are winners, this grant will generate 80% of the funds needed to benefit our children in a massive way, so PLEASE cast your votes in our direction and make our school an even better place to Care, Learn and Grow.
