Tir Coed delivers outdoor curriculum-based sessions to school groups and provides training to classroom staff so that they can sustain outdoor learning.

In Neyland Community School, Tir Coed delivered a programme of grounds development activities; working with the children to improve the school grounds while the class teachers were given activities to follow that can be used again and differentiated for different year groups. These sessions culminated in a training day for staff to try out activities, linking them to the National Curriculum and developing them for their classes.

In Ceredigion, Ysgol Llwyn yr Eos School paid for the creation and installation of magical hand-crafted musical instruments, including a drum kit and a crocodile xylophone, designed in consultation with the pupils.

   

Tir Coed works with Primary and Secondary Schools, Pupil Referral Units, Elective Home Education Groups, Family Centres, Nurseries and Youth Centres. 

Activities include: -        

  •  One-day bespoke woodland sessions         
  • Short or long term outdoor learning programmes          
  • Staff Training  
“Every week the session provides a real, purposeful context that we take back to class. The follow up tasks have full engagement as they are rooted in the pupils’ real experiences.” – Class Teacher, Pembrokeshire secondary school
