Thursday 26th October 2023  9:00am– 12:00pm

Meeting Point: Canolfan Cefnfaes, Bethesda with a visit to a nearby woodland

 

Training aimed teachers and educators who work with pupils aged 7-14yrs.

 

Aim: Provide practical experience of educational strategies and ideas that use woodlands to develop language and numeracy skills (both Welsh and English), by using activities that encourage a connection with nature and support wellbeing.

 

Thanks to the Celtic Rainforest project funding we can offer the experience for free.

 

Leader: Anita Daimond, Environmental and Outdoor Education Practitioner and Consultant from Antur Natur anita@anturnatur.cymru,  www.anturnatur.cymru

 

We anticipate that most participants will be Welsh speakers so Welsh will be the main language used during the event. Non-Welsh speakers are welcome and we will cater for your needs, but please inform us in advance.

 

You will need to wear clothes and footwear suitable for a short walk in a woodland.
