My Wild School

We know how important it is for children to spend time outside and here at the Wildlife Trusts we want to see Every Child Wild.

Through our own work, such as events and our Wildlife Watch clubs, we help children to discover the outdoors every day.

We have lots of information for teachers and home educators about how we can help you take your classes outside.

We’re also really interested in your views. How often do you use the outdoors as your classroom? We’d be very grateful if you could fill in our survey.

Lastly, we will be holding a Teacher Training Day in Cardiff in the Autumn 2017, with workshops about how you can link wildlife and the outdoors to the curriculum.

If you would be interested in attending this training, let Rose know on email or phone 01656 724100
