A hands-on day spent outdoors with Kim Hudson, Education Consultant from Inspiring Outdoors and staff from Copthill School, designed to build your confidence in taking your students into the school grounds for learning and play.

The day will include overcoming barriers, involving students in the process of learning outside, and trying quick activities from a variety of curriculum areas. With years of experience teaching beyond the classroom and being an assessor for the LOtC Mark for schools, Kim has lots of ideas to share and Copthill School is the perfect venue to encourage creative thinking about how you can use your school grounds to their full potential.
