Elevate Your Outdoor Learning

Has your setting started down the path of Outdoor Learning?  Has it started to tail off or become a bit staid?

Our INSET day could help to reinfuse the outdoor learning with enthusiasm and vigour!

This session is completely bespoke to your setting and content will be planned in discussion with you, but could include how to develop growing areas, developing wildlife areas, planting areas, using planting to demarcate areas, structures.  As well as brainstorming planning and activities, trying out a few new ones and hopefully refiring the creative processes!

Cost £500, which includes, a pre INSET visit, a follow up visit for a twilight session 6 to 12 months later, as well as access to support throughout the year, via email/messages or additional session (which are at an additional cost)

Supporting ALN in the Outdoors

As a teacher of 12+ years in a Special school, working across the age ranges Ellie found a huge difference between providing activities outside and those in the classroom.  The children were different, they developed transferable skills, things that were hard for them to grasp inside seemed to develiop more easily in the outdoors.

This workshop looks at

  • Risk assessment
  • What to plant when you have eaters of everything
  • Developing a garden for the senses
  • Transferring activities outside 
  • Taking a holistic approach to activities, breaking them down and seeing how many cross curricular skills are actually packed in!

Cost is variable, please get in contact to discuss your needs.

“Amazing sessional ideas with great links to the curriculum.  The ideas could be used as they are or used and easily tweaked according to the learners.  Great ideas.  I will definitely use again in the future.”

Site Development

We can help you develop your site for Outdoor learning.

  • Site Planning
  • Risk assessment
  • Curriculum implementation
  • Planting
  • Building small structures
  • and much more….

This can be done as part of twilights and INSET with staff or with groups of children within the school.  Maybe a project your older pupils might like to take to develop areas for their younger peers, younger children might like to create wildlife areas and everyone loves to grow!
