It’s a while since we caught up with the blogs posted by FEN: the Forest Education Network, but here are a few of them:

Take lessons outside to support mental health – was written by Place2Be in Children’s Mental Health Week, which was launched in 2015.

How to aid Student Growth In and Outside the Classroom – was written by Mark El Hagar who asks what can you do as a teacher to aid your learners’ growth in and outside the classroom?

Taking learning outside the classroom – was written by YPO and begins: “Compared to 50 years ago, children are spending less and less time outdoors, even more so after the events of the past six months and the developments in technology over the years – in fact, by the time a child reaches the age of 7, they will have spent the equivalent of 456 days looking at a screen – an average of four hours a day.”

3 Back to School Activities to get Children Learning Outside – was written by Liv Corp, content executive at Twinkl Educational Publishing that provides over 650,000 teacher-made resources.
