About this course

For centuries, nature has served as inspiration for many of our greatest writers. Similarly, taking literacy lessons outdoors can add a deeper level to children’s learning, encouraging imagination and creativity whilst also developing key communication skills and vocabulary.

By putting the multisensory nature of the outdoor classroom to use, you can prompt the formulation of richer ideas and responses in your pupils, whether through speaking or writing.

Taking Literacy Outdoors: Primary will introduce you to new ideas, research, and practice to help develop your confidence in an outdoor learning setting. During this online course, you will:

  • Gain an understanding of the benefits of taking literacy outdoors
  • Discover how to deliver high quality outdoor literacy lessons
  • Trial some LtL-approved activities in your setting
