Dreghorn Primary School in North Ayshire will host an LfS-focussed outdoor learning showcase on Thursday 28th May from 4pm to 6pm. The event is aimed at practitioners and leaders across North, East and South Ayrshire and is bookable via the North Ayshire CPD service.
Presentations from practitioners, learners and Education Scotland staff will be followed by a “market place” event where delegates can discuss outdoor learning approaches with a range of key partners. Grounds for Learning, the Soil Association, the Royal Highland Education Trust, the John Muir Trust, Outdoor and Woodland Learning Scotland, Keep Scotland Beautiful and the Adventure Centre for Education will be joined by the North Ayrshire Ranger service.
These providers will be on hand to offer advice and support on delivering outdoor learning as a regular, progressive curriculum-led experience for all learners.
For further information, contact Julia Kerr at Dreghorn Primary School.
Holidaying in Ibiza or even backpacking across Europe was not an option last summer for four inspirational undergraduate students from all across Scotland, who spurned the ordinary and instead single-handedly organised an extraordinary trip to the Arctic.
The main purpose of the trip was to study how climate change is affecting the landscape and the people of the Arctic.
Team leader, Cameron MacKay, was motivated to go on the trip due to his strong interest in climate change. To record the effects of climate change they used camera drones, art and social research. They responded to what they saw through creating music and art work.
To hear more from Cameron and the rest of his team tune in to our Glow meet on Wednesday 27th May, 10.45 – 11.45. They will be showing footage of the trip and answering your questions.
