Outdoor Learning Days

Our outdoor learning days take place either in our beautiful 10-acre woodland site, on your school site or in a local park or green space. The day offers pupils the opportunity to gain first-hand, practical experience of the natural world, which research shows helps ‘bring to life’ and embed learning.

Outdoor learning days can be tailored to suit your requirements and curriculum needs. Previous days have included woodland crafts, plant identification and foraging wild foods, den building, knots and rope games. You can pick an ‘off the shelf’ day such as Survival Skills or Habitats or we can design a day to suit the topic you are currently studying.

“Real-world learning brings the benefits of formal and informal education together and reinforces what good educationalists have always known: that the most meaningful learning occurs through acquiring knowledge and skills through real-life, practical or hands-on activities.”
