Curriculum Linked Learning Outside

the Classroom

  

Learning in  the natural environment innovates and enriches our pedagogy whilst helping us to connect more deeply with children. 

In the past decade, five significant, independent reviews have been conducted both nationally and internationally which focus on the impact of children learning in the natural environment. Each of them provide compelling evidence that outdoor learning can – and does – make a significant, positive impact on children’s mental health, physical health, concentration levels, enjoyment of learning, engagement and social and academic progress. 

This course will help you develop the confidence and skills so you can routinely harness the opportunities that teaching beyond the classroom provides for enriching the curriculum.
