Calming Kids Outdoors (KS1&2)

Research has shown that nature has a calming effect on the brain.  This course will assist teachers to harness the calming effect of nature, build better relations with their pupils and be more relaxed whilst teaching.  Simple sensory activities, breathing and meditative techniques will be demonstrated that attune pupils to ‘the moment’ and help them to learn about themselves and the world around them.


This course is run by OASES.  For this course the partner and non-partner rate refers to whether you are an OASES Schools’ Outdoor Learning Network member or not.  For more details on becoming a member please click here.
