Countdown to the National Education Show 2018:
About this Seminar:
Come outside – explore, experiment and enjoy!
The outdoors provides children with a unique learning environment and fantastic opportunities for getting up close with nature, awakening curiosity, questioning and imagination. Children who regularly spend time and play in the natural world develop strong environmental memories which last a lifetime. Being in the natural world has a positive impact on children’s health and wellbeing.
This is a practical, hands on session that will provide you with great ideas and engaging fun activities to try out with your class.
We will spend the session outside in Bute Park, exploring the green heart of the city. Please bring outdoor clothing. Also please be aware that during this session you will be required to move from one event location to another, from City Hall to the Castle grounds. At no time can the National Education Show take responsibility for your person, whilst walking from one location to another, crossing roads, pedestrian crossings etc… You are at this time responsible for your own personal safety and wellbeing.”
