Resources for schools


This place is like a building site

This place is like a building site is North Lanarkshire Council and Grounds for Learning’s report on the introduction of loose materials to three primary schools in North Lanarkshire.

It was produced to support and develop on-going work as part of Grounds for Learning’s Natural Play Project. A short film has also been produced to accompany the report. The main purpose of these resources is to inspire other schools to undertake similar work and provide them with the practical tools and information to do so.

The report is available to download for free.

The playtime revolution

The playtime revolution developing school playtimes to support the play curriculum and nurture happy, healthy children is a new resource published by Learning through Landscapes (LtL).

Its aim is to demonstrate how free play in schools can support children’s learning and development and to share practical, tested ideas and approaches to providing richer play experiences in primary schools.

Aimed at teachers and school staff the resource is divided into 11 sections, each of which covers a particular aspect or type of outdoor play provision. Each section includes a short film, accompanied by some discussions questions and links to other useful online resources.
