At Essex Outdoors we recognise that school grounds and other outreach locations can provide a varied and exciting learning environment and be a perfect setting in which to deliver key aspects of the curriculum, via the 'outdoor classroom'.
As a result we offer a number of School Grounds and Outreach programmes variously suited to primary, secondary and special schools, and for INSET. Activities included in the programmes are outlined below.
Tree planting and management (including willow tunnels and specialist planting e.g., fruit trees) Habitat creation e.g., wildflower meadow, hedges, invertebrate banks An INSET course on using and developing school grounds School Grounds and Science Week activities Science and Plants in Schools (SAPS) projects e.g., using light banks, fast plants and supermarket science.
