Tips and tricks for teachers

How outdoor learning boosts student wellbeing.

The Guardian have recently published an interesting and useful article about the benefits of outdoor education. These include:

  • Boosting self esteem
  • Finding calmness and a focus
  • Boosting a sense of community
  • Applying learning in real life settings
  • Making learning more memorable 

Acorn Adventure was set up by a former teacher in 1982 after taking his own pupils away on camping trips over three decades ago and seeing the enormous benefits first hand. Not only did he see an improvement in classroom achievement, he witnessed significant improvements in teacher-pupil interaction and engagement.
