Outdoor learning is simply another tool for teachers to use. It underpins the curriculum, helps you meet learning outcomes in real and meaningful way and is easy and affordable to deliver, in fact, it can cost less than indoor lessons!
Our experience teaching and supporting children in mainstream primary schools, secondary schools, severe and complex schools and ASD units provides us with a unique perspective and ensures we understand the stresses and strains you face on a daily basis.
Our training is led by Carol Murdoch, an educational consultant and teacher with nearly 20 years experience of working within education. Carol understands the Curriculum and demands schools are under to create affordable yet stimulating experiences for both children and staff. She will work with your school to tailor make your experience days and training sessions meet your specific requirements.
Love Outdoor Learning provide high quality affordable experience days for schools and community groups. Whether it is marking the end of the year, building dens, using tools, story telling or more! There is a wide range of workshops to suit every class and every level.
Our workshop days can last a full day and support a single class or group, or, we can run shorter workshops and allow more classes to benefit from us coming in.
We also run an innovative integration programme where we work with children to help them understand their thoughts and feelings, teaching them coping strategies, breathing techniques while undertaking outdoor skills which will build their confidence, resilience and team working skills.
We also offer regular weekly forest sessions to classes to help them take their learning outdoors.
Our team of teachers and support staff understand the curriculum, but more than that, we comprehend the pressures schools are under to meet curriculum demands while keeping lessons motivational.
Love Outdoor Learning provides on site training for your staff, either on site or at a nearby wood, even concrete playgrounds have plenty of learning opportunities!
