Countryside Classroom - Connecting schools with food, farming and the natural environment

Growing Schools has been re-launched as Countryside Classroom, the largest ever partnership of organisations who are committed to helping children learn about food, farming and/or the natural environment.

It is the vision of Countryside Classroom that schools and teachers across the UK will embrace food, farming and the natural environment as essential components of a broad and balanced curriculum, incorporating them into day-to-day learning. As a result of this, every child will have the opportunity to learn about and experience these topics in diverse ways that are increasingly supported by experiences outside the classroom.

Growing School Garden Teachers Resource Pack

This Teacher’s Resource Pack aims to help all teachers use their school gardens and grounds as a creative learning resource.

Schools across the country and pupils of all ages can use their outdoor spaces to enhance teaching and learning, whatever their location . The pack contains 22 factsheets and a wall poster based on the features made by participating schools and incorporated in the Growing Schools Garden. The factsheets give details of how to recreate these and provide links to the curriculum, illustrating the range of imaginative and educational features that can be made by pupils and teachers in school without major expense.
