Here’s a selection of photos and some of the feedback. Looking forward to 2015 Beyond the Classroom Conference – please contact me with what you think should be included in the programme..

FEEDBACK: Did the conference match your expectations?

“YES – going back with some great practical ideas as well as some food for thought…”

“It matched it and more… not just about the outdoors but learning other things on Literacy”

“Yes – it has given me a range of ideas to use for outdoor learning across the curriculum”

“I had no expectations – I Came with an open mind, but my mind is now a little fuller :)”

“Exceeded! Great variety & I learnt a lot about school needs & curriculum”

“P4C – very thought-provoking”

“Pupil premium good – how money spent”

” Came last year and it was brilliant… this year was even better!”

Again – thanks again for all your comments. OLC will take on board comments on presenters, more workshops!! and giving out more information from the keynote on Embedding Outdoor Learning – watch this space for a follow-up session if people want to attend.

We’d love to hear your feedback from the event and how you’ve tried out ideas in school – please keep us up to date with how your outdoor learning is going :)
