If your setting is lucky enough to be based close to Exmoor National Park then you really should check out their website.
Why not involve your young people in planning a visit to the moor using their interactive map to explore the variety of things to see and do! You can find the map here.
I’m pretty sure it won’t be long before you find the ‘learning’ section of their website and realise that much of your planning and preparation has already been done for you! Bonus!
“Welcome to the Moorland Classroom
The Moorland Classroom is a specially produced range of resources aimed at supporting teachers to deliver unforgettable learning experiences for children, using the unique moorland environment of Exmoor National Park. This bespoke suite of online learning and teaching materials has been designed for use both in the classroom and to support amazing outdoor learning experiences in some of Exmoor’s special places. They are appropriate for Key Stage 1 to lower Key Stage 3, are cross-curricular and entirely free to use.”
The back ground information they provide to complement their ideas is excellent. The World War ll background reading is a resource valuable for anyone teaching about the war, not just those living near the sites on Exmoor. Check them out here.
You will soon find a range of resources that fit perfectly with the areas around the Exmoor National Park but some of the ideas would work perfectly in other locations so do check them out if you live further afield and let us know if you find them useful!
It would be a valuable use of five precious minutes to check these things out I am sure!
