Taking lessons outside of the confines of the classroom brings learning to life. Get Out More’s hands-on activities are engaging and fun, giving children the freedom to take a creative approach to learning using all their senses.

Our outdoor learning ideas make the most of the resources in the playground, playing field or nearby natural area. Whether its ideas for writing, new approaches to numeracy, bringing drama to history or exciting links to topic work, Get Out More can help you develop and deliver interesting ideas for lessons that pupils will remember. We have experience of running successful programmes with children in foundation and key stages 1 and 2 and special schools and have delivered well received CPD and planning sessions with teaching staff to promote the benefits of outdoor learning across school.

Get Out More will tailor an outdoor learning programme to meet your needs, whether it is developing skills for learning or links to the curriculum.  To discuss outdoor learning, please contact us.
