Calming Kids Outdoors (KS1 & KS2)

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 practices and meditative techniques will be demonstrated that attune pupils to ‘the moment’, helping them to learn about themselves and the world around them.

This course is organised in partnership with Education Durham.  If you are a member of Education Durham the cost of the course is £150 and non-members is £205.
