Downloadable Learning Destination activities
We are working with a number of our national learning partners
to create a range of activities which support children's
independent learning, and can also be used by groups of children
and their families. To begin the collection we have developed
a Forest Trail with the Forestry Commission and a Creative Arts
Explorer pack with Bigfoot Creative Arts.
Details of how to complete the activities and gain time in the
Learning Passport are included within the pack. We will be
adding more activities soon, and would love to hear your feedback
and suggestions for further activities.
