Absolutely fantastic. I’ve always tried to take learning outside, but this training showed how to make it easy and manageable, overcoming lots of the things that in the past I would have considered barriers. Lots of brilliant ideas that are transferable to different subjects and I can see so many benefits for the children of being outside, both to enhance their learning as well as improve their wellbeing. A really fun and informative day.
