A Curriculum for Excellence Through Outdoor Learning is now published and available from the re-vamped LTS website.This is the national (Scottish) advice about taking children outside, aged 3-18. There's also lots of resources and advice. Well worth a look.

Hi Jeannie
Thanks a lot for posting the photo - isn't it lovely. I always end up having that debate about when does a courgette become a marrow...if it does! Ahem!

I love getting kids interested in growing things. Courgettes are a good bet. So easy to grow and the way they seem to double in size overnight intrigues kids.

I've just found out about this wonderful scheme in Glasgow http://news.scotsman.com/education/The-Dear-Green-Place-just.570925...
What an inspiration to other local authorities!

Ah, yes - it was her!

That's great! You'll have met Sally York. She's just super and does a fantastic job as the Education Policy Adviser for Forestry Commission Scotland.

The world is a small place... ;-)

I met Clare Nugent of Mindstretchers and Sally (forgot her last name) of Forest School Scotland at the 4th Conference on forest pedagogics in Switzerland in October (organized by SILVIVA).

Hi Peter
Hello and thanks for your suggestion. The great thing about Scotland is its size so we all get to know each other. Last week was the annual gathering of the FEI with 100 forest school practitioners and interested folk getting together. Forest School Scotland definitely knows of C&NN Connect because I did email them. And several people on this network are involved with them in some form or another, including myself! Claire Warden at Mindstretchers has a finger in many pies so I'm sure she knows too, although she's been out of the country recently.

So forgive me for being inquisitive but how do you know of these organisations?

Juliet
