What do we mean by a natural learning area?
An natural learning area is a wild and natural space where learners are free to play with found items from nature and learn about the natural world.
What does a natural learning area look like?
Lots of trees (woodland) if possible – look at The Woodland Trust’s website who give away lots of free trees for you to start planting.
Plants, grass, meadow planting – a place that doesn’t need to be maintained but a place nature can thrive. Keep the weeds and create your own wildlife reserve in your school grounds.
