Take the classroom outside for a breath of fresh air
Take your classroom outside for a breath of fresh air. There are 15 National Parks in England and Wales, 2 in Scotland and 1 in Northern Ireland, all are easily accessible by coach and offer exciting and interesting expert led learning activities, such as compass orienteering skills, team building, farmland walks and curriculum linked sessions for schools and colleges.
The UK’s family of national parks contains our finest landscapes and wildlife habitats including mountains, moorland, woodland and heathland, traditional farmland and historic buildings, archaeological sites, lakes, rivers and coasts. As well as providing opportunities for learning, recreation and exercise these areas offer space, tranquillity and an invaluable contrast to urban lifestyles. It is important that all young people have the opportunity to experience these places and their special qualities. Today’s young people are the residents, visitors, landowners and decision makers of the future and it is essential that they grow up with an awareness of the immense value of these places in order to help ensure that future generations are well placed to benefit from them, too.
