NEW - 'Ranger in a Bag' activity from Forestry England

New (JAN 23) outdoor learning resource available for teachers from Forestry England

Forestry England have launched a new resource called “Ranger in a bag” as part of their education offer. The nation’s forests are the ideal place to inspire and encourage young people to gain real-life skills and knowledge through hands-on activities and Ranger in a bag is a brilliant toolkit for teachers to hire and use as part of self-guided school visit.

Aimed at teachers with preschool aged children and KS1&2 primary aged children, these activity themed backpacks provide teachers with all they need to run a successful educational visit in the nation’s forests. Designed to take half a day to complete, each activity bag contains games and activities for a class of up to 35 children and costs from £35. All the activities are easy to follow and have clear learning outcomes with links to the national curriculum.

In addition to the learning topics that are currently available for teachers, including amazing animals, natural art and fantastic forests, Forestry England have developed 5 different themed bags that are based around a career with Forestry England. Through experiential learning children will be able to take on a variety of trainee roles including forester, ecologist, wellbeing champion and woodland artist allowing them to gain career awareness in a fun and engaging way.
