Primary School ProgrammesWild things! provides a number of environmental education courses for primary schools in the North of Scotland – Moray, the Cairngorms and the Highlands. Our programmes are progressive and focus on accessing and learning about the fantastic natural resources on our doorsteps.
We try our hardest to make these programmes as easy as possible for the schools involved – we provide transport, equipment, tools and quality outdoor clothing. Our enthusiastic and qualified leaders bring a wealth of practical skills and conservation knowledge, along with ideas, games and camp-fire stories. Where appropriate we provide materials for use in school so that the learning can be continued and incorporated into the curriculum.
“‘All aspects of the curriculum can be explored outside. The sights, sounds and smells of the outdoors, the closeness to nature, the excitement most children feel, the wonder and curiosity all serve to enhance and stimulate learning.’
