The Curriculum for Excellence encourages learning outdoors. Taking learning outside the classroom can be enjoyable, creative, challenging and adventurous. It helps children and young people learn by experience and grow as confident and responsible citizens who value the spectacular landscapes, natural heritage and culture of Scotland (LTS guidance document, ‘Curriculum for Excellence through Outdoor Learning.’)
Visiting The Great Trossachs Forest will give relevance and context to what pupils have been learning in the classroom, deepening their understanding. Outdoor learning also gives opportunities for linking learning across curriculum areas.
