Why teach Outdoor Learning?
At Borders Partnership we have a strong ethos for outdoor learning and believe that it can be used in many cross curricular areas to strengthen and deepen pupils' understanding and knowledge and create real life experiences for pupils.
Through outdoor learning pupils will become confident, resilient and determined learners who are safe risk-takers. The children are exposed to natural environments enabling them to gain understanding and respect for the natural world and all that lives within it. ODL promotes health benefits through engaging with nature which is proven to improve mental health and wellbeing.
