Outdoor learning

Our exciting new project, Wild Classrooms aims to focus and support outdoor learning. It is based around getting children outside to observe and experience seasonal changes and cover elements of the science curriculum. It can also be easily adapted to a more sensory approach to experiencing nature and act as a stimulus for creative projects. Every participating group gets a copy of our original A2 full colour monthly wildlife calendar, a class set of A4 children’s notebooks, Teacher’s/Leader’s notes and up to three visits from Tamsin, our Wild Classrooms’ Project Officer.

 

Using the calendar as a guide, the idea is that the children can go out each month or even once a term and look for any changes that they can observe or cover elements of the curriculum. They then record their findings in their notebooks. This can be as formal or informal as the teacher/leader chooses and can include drawings, poems, pressed flowers or photos. Anything, in fact, that records the children's experience of their changing ‘WildClassroom’!

Tamsin will come in for up to three visits during this time, either to lead wildlife observations or to teach seasonal curriculum linked activities. Then at the end of the year, she will come for a final visit and look at the children’s books and stamp the final page to show that they have completed the project.
