BUG hunting and outdoor learning is on the timetable for youngsters at a Sheffield school.

Pupils can get back to nature at Mosborough Primary School thanks to a grant from the Big Lottery Fund.

The £2,000 has paid for a new woodland hut – which has equipment for pond dipping, bug hunting and den making – so children can explore their grounds.

Teacher Tracey Waller, outdoor learning co-ordinator at the site on New School Road, said: “The children absolutely love the new woodland hut.

“We are doing outdoor learning at the moment, so they are all using it as part of that – looking for bugs and wildlife all around.

“We have got a really good site here at the school and this means we can explore it even more.”

A grand opening of the hut took place last week.

Coun Chris Rosling-Josephs, Sheffield Council Labour member for Beighton and a school governor, cut the red ribbon.
