National School Grounds Week - 8 - 12 June

National School Grounds Week

National School Grounds Week is run by Learning Through Landscapes (LTL) and is an annual campaign to show just how easy, and worthwhile, it can be to take teaching and learning outdoors. The week provides a focus for school to take learning outdoors, into their school grounds and beyond. Research tells us that learning beyond the classroom is often more memorable and helps children to make sense of their learning. This year's theme is pollination.

Edinburgh's first Outdoor Nursery

Mother Goose Nursery

In2Teaching recently attended the launch of Edinburgh's first Outdoor Nursery. Outdoor Nursery Edinburgh (part of Mother Goose Nusery) delivers its curriculum using the outdoor environment. Every day the children take part in woodland walks, climb trees, build dens and cook over a fire pit. There is also a large secure play area at the back of the nursery that the children use regularly throughout each day. The nursery is the first of its kind in Edinburgh and is fully supported by the parents of the children who attend.
