Exmoor National Park - a great place for teaching and learning
Exmoor has long been recognised as a superb place for outdoor learning. Our unique environment offers an exceptional diversity of locations, subject, habitats and experiences within a relatively small and accessible area, making it an inspiring and practical destination for groups of any age. In recent years we have developed a range of free and curriculum based online resources to support outdoor learning on Exmoor . These include our Moorland Classroom resources which provide structured learning resources for key moorland sites throughout Exmoor and our new Lyn Catchment Resource supporting the teaching of GCSE and A level Geography.
The River Lyn is of course associated with the terrible flood disaster which devastated Lynmouth in 1952 causing significant loss of life. While exploring the causes and response to those tragic events , this enquiry led resource for GCSE and A level geography (going life shortly) will support evaluation of the physical and human functions of the drainage basin using through video, maps and structured enquiries.
The Moorland Classroom is a project to provide unforgettable learning experiences for children, using the unique moorland environment of Exmoor National Park. This bespoke suite of online learning and teaching materials has been designed for use both in the classroom and to support amazing outdoor
learning experiences in some of Exmoor's special places. They are appropriate for Key Stage 1 to lower Key Stage 3, are cross-curricular and entirely free to use.
We are here to help support education on Exmoor.
If you would like to talk to us about a visit, need advice on how to use the on line resources, or have any questions about education on Exmoor then please contact either.
