Back to school

Back to school!

It was Back to School for me too today!

I’m excited to be working with YBC again this year, taking learning outdoors every Tuesday. Today was all about planning and I’m brimming with ideas. I’m looking forward to starting back with pupils in two week’s time!

I’ve also been taking bookings for teachers looking for a different way to kick start and introduce a new topic to inspire their pupils. And teachers looking for an alternative school trip to remember have already started planning it with us 👍

We cater for groups of less than ten to around 60. So if you’re looking for an outdoor learning session or planning your next school trip, do drop us a line! Steph 😊

Ten Christmas Stocking Gift Ideas For Outdoors Lovers

There’s not many shopping or postage days left until Christmas. Are you still looking for gift ideas for someone who loves the outdoors? Then check out some of our Christmas stocking filler ideas below.

  1. Glow in the dark playing cards
  2. An outdoorsy or nature-themed calendar. If you buy the BBC Countryfile Calendar you’ll also be helping to raise money for Children In Need
  3. Extendable, reusable marshmallow sticks – for when you’re in need of a toasted marshmallow. Or you can even personalise these marshmallow toasting sticks.
  4. Merino wool socks to keep feet warm in winter and dry in the summer
  5. Books – on a recent shopping trip to Cardiff, we noticed that Waterstones have a whole section dedicated to nature writing
  6. A waterproof map case is a useful gift for serious hikers
  7. Hand warmers make a handy gift for someone who spends a lot of time outdoors
  8. A fire steel – you can’t go wrong with buying someone this handy piece of kit. Or for something a little different, check out this DIY kit to make an antler fire striker.
  9. A Buff neck warmer / neck gaiter – perfect for walking, hiking or winter sports enthusiasts
  10. Thermos flask – a must-have for your cuppa whilst out on a Winter walk
