Recovery Curriculum Launch
Northumberland National Park Authority has launched its Recovery Curriculum to help school communities restore a love for learning amongst pupils in its unique and special landscapes, following over 18 months of disruption, due to the pandemic.
Over 1,100 student engagements took place between April and July 2021 through Northumberland National Park’s Learning Programme, from 10 different schools in the North East. Within this time, the learning team delivered almost 30 different activities for school children, including river dipping sessions in the Breamish Valley, geology sessions to uncover the history of Northumberland, and dark sky discovery workshops at The Sill.
Northumberland National Park has responded to the increase in interest of outdoor learning from schools by expanding its Learning Programme, and launching a Recovery Curriculum.
The Learning Programme aims to encourage future generations to be inspired by the landscape and become passionate about conserving and enhancing the National Park, for future generations to enjoy.
