Teaching primary science outdoors NY009
Primary science subject leaders and teachers will learn to develop engaging outdoor science lessons to support pupils' progress
Outdoor learning is brilliant! Not only do children enjoy taking lessons in the outdoor classroom, but research has found that taking lessons outside can actually help young people learn later in life.
You will have the opportunity to explore primary science activities outdoors, and take away a number of ideas which you can implement in your classroom. You will also have the opportunity to look at the research underpinning outdoor learning, as well as the resources and courses that are available to support you and your school.
Please bring wellies and waterproofs, sunglasses and a hat!
