The Countryside Classroom (previously Growing Schools) website now has a range of learning resources for teachers organised by key stage and subject. Teachers can browse through a wide selection of suitable outdoor sites, and can search for outdoor activities and topics such as discovering more about plants and animals, how to teach maths outside, and gardening with children with special educational needs.
There is also information about sourcing funding, making the case for learning outdoors, health and safety and how to use the outdoors for teaching across the whole curriculum.
The site is interactive, to enable teachers to share with others – using photos and/or videos – the successes and challenges of taking lessons out in green spaces. You can share resources that have proved useful, and news about how your school is using nature to give the curriculum an extra boost of inspiration.
