Take your everyday lessons outdoors
Grab and go outdoor lesson plans. Simply tailor to your children’s specific needs and head out of the door. No tools or fire, just your everyday classroom equipment, your existing outdoor space and our innovative activities.
Unlike Forest School, curriculum outdoor learning is a tool for teaching and learning. The approach transports your typical indoor lesson to your outdoor space using minimal resources to teach the same lesson objective. Teachers utilise their existing expertise in the outdoor environment to support learners and embed these outdoor lessons within their teaching sequence.
Amazing resources which have really helped our school be more confident in using the outdoor space to enhance the children's learning. Great, fun, easy to follow lesson plans, which link directly to the key objectives!
The Alfresco planning hub is a fantastic resources with lesson that are easy to pick up and teach. I use them both as full lesson, lesson starters and intervention session for an LSA. Would highly recommend.
I am a member of the Planning Hub and I love the variety of lessons provided. Most lessons need only simple materials that I usually already have on hand. I love taking my students out with these lessons.
Brilliant resources, easy to follow and adapt for learners, clear progression!
The online planning hub is a lifesaver. I teach in KS1 and the children always ask when we are going outside and parents always say how excited the children are about their outdoor learning. It is exactly what I was looking for and have now been using it for several years. Thank you for such a brilliant resource!
