100 Ideas for Primary Teachers: Outdoor Learning is packed with inspiring ideas to generate enthusiasm and engage pupils in learning through positive outdoor experiences.
These can then be used as a stimulus for further learning back in the primary classroom. Suitable for any outdoor environment, Adam Bushnell and Sc.out.ed present tried-and-tested ideas that are not only learner-led but also promote hands-on, real-life learning.
Covering a range of National Curriculum areas including literacy, design and technology, maths, science, history, art and geography, the activities involve learning through experimentation and problem solving. All ideas can be used as standalone lessons as well as to complement topic-based work.
The activities ensure that pupils can experience a variety of practical learning lessons, helping them to build relationships with peers, reduce behaviour problems and encourage independence.
