This is a specially dedicated space to support children, parents and teachers who want to help connect children with nature through hands on learning.
Watch this space for downloadable worksheets, nature identification charts, ideas of things to do in your garden and challenges to link the outdoors to all sorts of areas on the curriculum. We’ll also point you in the direction of recommended websites and books we think might be useful too.
Send us pictures of your work and tell us what you think. Learning about the natural world can be great way to bring us all together, whether online or in person – so we love to hear from you with your ideas and suggestions.
