Primary Summer School NS004


During the summer school participants will look at the broad themes of biodiversity and sustainability in relation to Curriculum for Excellence (CfE). A major focus will be to explore the use of hands-on practical science activities which participants will be able to use to help them address the Sciences Experiences and Outcomes within their local environment. The outdoor environment, including a local wood, will be used for the practical sessions.
