Cover of Wood Wise Autumn 2017 - nature inspires education

In this issue, teachers and practitioners share their approaches to integrating nature with education.

Forest school competes with other subjects and, with younger children in particular, can look as if it’s just about having fun. The article discusses the value of outdoor learning as well as the health and social benefits of connecting with nature.

These include improved mental wellbeing, physical activity and team work.
