Was at an Outdoor Learning conference all day today. Always good to hear from staff in other schools, sharing ideas etc. Some lovely ideas and good to hear about all the partnerships folk have developed in order to achieve their dream outdoor spaces.
Our task from the day is to get our own schools to use an outdoor space away from the school grounds. There was some debate about whether this was the best way forward for schools when the school grounds are being underused by teachers at the moment.
Which comes first - confidence in outdoor learning in school grounds or in a place a 10-15 minute walk away from the school? I'd be interested to know what you think?
