    Haltwhistle, UK
    Funded on Tuesday, 16th October 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    At Haltwhistle First School we want to make learning irresistible and exciting every day! Our next project is the creation of an Invention Shed in collaboration with the House of Objects, giving our children their own dedicated space to think creatively, design and construct their own ideas.

    The video below explains the aims and approach of this project:

    As one of the first schools in the country to have access to this unique approach, our children will be able to benefit in the following ways:

    Hands-on learning improves engagement

    Meaningful context inspires literacy and numeracy

    Child directed projects boost self-esteem, improve creativity and cultivate curiosity

    Small group environment promotes team work and communication skills

    Use of household tools gives practical skills children can practice at home

    Home-school recycling project supports parental engagement

    Frameworks and training boost staff confidence in applied STEM teaching

    New and challenging materials improve critical thinking skills

    Help us to bring our project to life and create amazing experiences for the children of Haltwhistle by supporting this project.

    Thank you to:

    Haltwhistle Freemasons for their generous pledge of £100

    ... this brings our target down to £10400
