The primary classroom outside
- Ideal for INSET or CPD
- Suitable for primary schools
- Focus on outdoor learning
- Takes place in your school
A flexible teacher training course designed to help teachers make best use of the outdoor classroom – delivered by us at your school.
Led by experienced members of Eden’s education team, and tailored specifically to your needs, we aim for a thought provoking and inspiring session that will demonstrate how your school grounds are brimming with potential for outdoor learning.
Our methods are playful, linking closely to the curriculum to achieve an enquiry-based and challenge-led approach to the core subjects. We balance time spent outdoors sharing practical ideas with a strong theoretical foundation based upon current research.
Our aim is to leave you with pockets full of ideas and ‘ready to go’ activities, and with new confidence for planning your own curriculum linked sessions and events.
I had a lovely day, which has massively inspired me to incorporate outdoor learning in the whole curriculum.
