Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust sends a message of support to teachers

The Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust Outdoor Learning team have launched a programme of offers to support teachers during this transition period in education. It’s a tough time for children and teachers alike as children return to school, so the Outdoor learning team at the Trust want to be able to offer support where possible, helping teachers and schools to navigate their way through to the school holidays and beyond, taking advantage of the beautiful summer weather and social distancing outside.

During lockdown the Outdoor learning team have already been supporting teachers and home schooling parents with free online resources, wildlife challenge videos and pre-school activity ideas and have now widened the offer to all local schools including;

  • A wide range of FREE curriculum based 1 hour sessions, from natural art to exploring local wildlife, deliverable with classes on school grounds, or in a nearby green space.
  • A brand new FREE session about litter, recycling, and the environment which can be delivered to a class or the whole school as an assembly.
  • A training session for teachers to give them the skills to work outside more, either temporarily or as part of a longer term plan.

Sarah Lamb Outdoor Learning Officer at Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust said,

“Using your outdoor space has been identified by the government as a great way of social distancing, and fortunately, we are masters of the outdoor space! So now that schools are beginning to open, we want to help you to really make the most of your outdoor spaces or local green space.”
