Course Description

We, humans, tend to perceive nature as something to control or visit rather than being instinctively aware that it is something of which we are an integral part and on which our lives depend. How can we re-wild ourselves and the land which we use? This course aims to reintroduce you and your students to your natural habitat through colorful, interactive encounters with diverse plants and animals.

Combining hands-on ecology with visual arts, storytelling, music, drama, and games makes it easy to form an intimate knowledge of our planet’s ecosystems and a deep affection for the biodiversity which they support. It enables us to imagine a healthy, abundant future for our environment and take positive action towards that vision.

Multi-sensory observation of nature has mental health benefits and is a way to include all kinds of learners. It can also act as a gateway into other learning opportunities and personal development. It is an ideal subject for boosting the confidence of quieter students as they can easily gain first-hand personal expertise in this fascinating topic.

Each day of the course builds on the previous one, from introducing the concepts to hands-on field-based activities, to the creative treatment of a species encountered on a field trip, and then to act on what you have learned. The course takes a place-based learning approach, encouraging engagement with your local wildlife, folklore, community, and citizen science biodiversity recording schemes.

We will focus in particular on insects and the plants on which they live, as these are the most widespread, diverse, and easily accessible study subjects for children. Every dramatic scene you would expect from a nature documentary can be witnessed in miniature in the undergrowth. Students who find insects repulsive are soon converted to bug-saving heroes after they have held one in their hands, drawn its portrait, and gained an understanding of why it is important and what it needs to survive!
