Resources and activities

We provide a range of free materials to help you deliver engaging and memorable outdoor learning. Tried and tested by teachers, they include tree planting resources, wildlife identification tools, nature crafts and lots more.

Many of our activities can be done in your school grounds or out in the woods, with plenty of ideas to continue learning back in the classroom. Our resources are linked to the KS1 and KS2 curriculum, but they're suitable for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland too.
