My Wild Learning

Postby zoeanne83 » Mon Mar 05, 2018 5:24 pm

This blog is all about connecting children with nature and the great outdoors.

I work as a Forest School leader in a Primary School. It is very clear that will modern day technology children are becoming more and more disconnected from nature. My aim is to inspire children about the great outdoors, whether creating miniature dens for hedgehogs, taking part in the Big School Birdwatch or other campaigns such as 'Show the Love' raising awareness about Climate Change, I want to ensure that I instil a love and lifelong respect for our natural world in our future generation. I hope that this blog also provides other teachers and parents with ideas about how they can get their children outdoors learning to love nature and have fun doing it!

Regular diary entries, photographs and video footage will keep you entertained and show just how much children love our amazing environment and in turn want to protect it.

Enjoy!

As part of National Science Week, children at our school had a go at making a bird's nest. Not as easy as it seems...

The children have loved finding worms, snails and slugs in the rainy weather. It inspired them to create homes for these creatures.

The children have been showing awareness of climate change by creating hearts from clay and decorating with green materials as part of 'Show the Love' week.
