Here are a few highlights:

Penny Hay from 5x5x5=creativity and Bath Spa University will highlight the importance arts and creativity activities outside the classroom. 5x5x5=creativity fosters creative enquiry by empowering children and young people to take the lead in their learning, explore the world around them and discover the joys of proactive learning.

Louise Edwards of the Pilot Partnership and Chrissie Broadhurst of Brownmead School in Birmingham will talk about their experience of developing Brilliant Residentials with the Learning Away project.

Lucy McRobert of A Focus on Nature will talk about how young people are seizing the initiative in conservation by setting out their Vision for Nature, which includes a recommendation that 20% of primary school lessons should take place outside the classroom.

In addition, there are practical workshops including sessions looking at ideas for teaching particular curriculum areas outside the classroom, how to access and use resources that are available to support LOtC, and updates on the latest research in the sector.  There’s further information about the conference programme here.
