Learning outdoors

Literacy doesn’t always have to mean sitting down with a book. As the weather warms up, taking a trip out with your child can open up lots of new ways to improve their reading, writing and communication skills.

We’ve put together a book list for encouraging outdoor learning, as well as a guide to creating a brilliant outside treasure hunt, tips on where to go to boost your child’s literacy, and lots more!
