Pupils enjoy newly-carved Storyteller’s Tree

Pupils enjoy newly-carved Storyteller’s Tree

Weston Green pupils are enjoying making use of a newly-carved Storytellers Tree, created from an old tree which was recently removed from the school playground, following high winds earlier in the year.

Local chainsaw artist and wood carver, Ella Fielding, spent the Easter holidays transforming the tree stump into a storyteller’s seat, carved with woodland creatures and tree stump seats, allowing the school’s youngest children to enjoy outdoor learning in a unique setting.

Mr Mike Harrison, Headteacher at Weston Green School said: “We saw the removal of a large tree from the school playground, as a great opportunity to expand on our outdoor learning areas, here at Weston Green. The carvings of animals such as an owl, woodpecker, squirrel and bee are representative of the learning characteristics that we aim to instil within our pupils. We are delighted with our new Storyteller’s Tree, which is a real work of art and provides an inspiring setting for the children to enjoy group reading and other activities, outside of the classroom.”
