Transforming Outdoor Learning in Schools - Lessons from the Natural Connections Project

Outdoor learning isn’t a subject or topic; it’s a powerful way of teaching. Natural Connections has shown that it’s possible for school grounds and local greenspaces to be used regularly to support teaching and learning across the curriculum. It can cost very little and deliver many benefits for pupils and staff.
This Transforming Outdoor Learning in Schools: Lessons from the Natural Connections Project booklet provides school staff with an introduction to the value and impact of well-planned regular outdoor learning. This simple guide provides planning support and case studies to help teachers, schools and their networks develop outdoor learning.
