It contains an abundance of new ideas to support teachers to deliver imaginative outdoor learning sessions in school playgrounds, including inspiring environmental stories, nature connection exercises, session plans, drama activities and games, and is packed full of handy tips and insights for facilitating creative outdoor learning sessions.
The pack is suitable for teachers, early years practitioners or any practitioner working in an education setting, looking to explore more creative ways of delivering outdoor learning and sustainable development education.
“Teachers who have used this resource have found it well planned out, easy to follow and have found the activities to be very motivating for the children.” Andrea Gurd, Aultmore Park

The Scottish Education Awards recognise early learning and childcare settings and schools that have developed a vibrant and progressive culture and climate of continuous innovation. There are 15 award categories in total.
From 2013 onwards the Awards featured a Creative Learning Award category with notable shortlisted winners from primary, early learning and childcare, and secondary schools. Last year we took the awards a step further by embedding creative teaching, creative learning, and creative improvement in all of the award categories, and with a focus on creativity skills within a new Employability and Creativity Skills across Learning category.
You may wish to submit a nomination or encourage nominations from your authority/area for this award which recognises establishments that promote the development of employability and creativity skills for pupils and staff in partnership with the wider school community across all contexts and settings where young people are learning.
Find out more and make nominations by 6pm on Thursday 14 February here:
Please read the guidance notes incorporated into this page which explain what information should be provided.
