This episode is supported by the team behind Outdoor Learning Day, UK.
In this episode of the UKEd_Podcast we explore the opportunities for teaching and learning outside. We visit the RSPB's Ribble Estuary Discovery Centre - Lancashire, UK - where we speak to Claire Crictchley as she explains exploring the mud flats nearby along with meeting some unique mini-beasts. We also speak to Kathryn Phillips from The Wildlife Trust for Lancashire Manchester and North Merseyside's Brockholes site just outside the city of Preston as she explains the Forest School opportunities available there.
Our guest for the show is the respected outdoor learning consultant Juliet Robertson from CreativeStar in Scotland. Juliet shares great ideas and activities to take the learning outside, no matter what school grounds and facilities you have.
Richard J Rodgers and his Ukranian teaching colleague Alex share how important learning outdoors is, especially when students live in a world that barely goes beyond their own four walls.
