learning about trees through literacy

 Outdoor Learning training

Outdoor Learning is subject based learning that takes place in a natural environment. Lessons are pre-planned and have a fixed outcome and can therefore be measured against specific learning targets. For example, making 2D shapes in outdoor maths. Above all, learning outdoors improves childrens’ physical and mental health and consequently their overall well-being. Outdoor Learning training courses cover a range of topics. This includes learning and development, managing risk and also using a natural space in a sustainable way. In addition, trainees plan a programme of Outdoor Learning lessons (Level 2) or map out  a whole school approach (Level 3),

Research shows that Outdoor Learning

Improves children’s long term physical health and mental well-being.

Helps children develop a wide range of transferable skills for example communication and teamwork.

Improves their concentration and so encourages a positive attitude to learning.

Helps students develop emotional literacy and therefore enhances social and emotional skills.
