Teachers and Leaders FAQs

What does my subscription involve?

By subscribing to Outdoor Learning Made Easy Ltd, your establishment will enjoy access to a wide range of innovative teaching and learning resources which, depending on your level of subscription, link outdoor learning activities to your chosen curriculum. You can select from EYFS/ KS1 Membership; KS2 Membership; or Full EYFS/ KS1 & KS2 Membership.

When can I access the resources?

As soon as you have subscribed to Outdoor Learning Made Easy Ltd, you will receive unique log-in details to enjoy exclusive access to a vast range of resources and guidance documents.

How do I use the resources?

Once you click on the ‘Teachers & Leaders’ icon and log in, you can access resources through the easily navigable icons. Our mascots will help you to navigate your journey and locate the resources you need. Resources are spilt into recognisable sections. The ‘Outdoor Learning Plans and Activities’ section forms the main part of this website. In this section you will find activities linked to all Early Years and Primary subjects and Topics. The other sections provide help and guidance with implementing, developing, assessing and celebrating your Outdoor Learning provision.

Are the resources cross-curricular and how will they fit into my current schemes of work?

Absolutely! You will notice that all relevant curriculum links and subjects are listed on all of the activities, to enable you to incorporate them seamlessly into your current schemes of work, whilst supporting a creative curriculum approach. Activities for each topic follow age specific national curriculum objectives and so you can simply choose the activities which are relevant to the objectives you wish to achieve.

What about subjects which aren't listed in the icons?

As we are providing activities that link to all subjects and topics; so our site doesn’t get too tricky and complicated, we have only provided icons and sections for the main subject and topics. However, additional subjects and topic links are listed on resources when relevant. You may also use our ‘Search Facility’ to find resources, in particular those without icon sections.

Do I need to be qualified to use these resources?

All of our resources in the Teachers and Leaders section are written with qualified teachers and leaders in mind. Our aim is to provide exciting ideas alongside the latest developments in education. Health and safety guidelines are listed and a whole section of our website is devoted to policies, procedures and risk assessments in outdoor learning for your guidance. However, by subscribing to Outdoor Learning Made Easy Ltd, you acknowledge that all resources are for guidance purposes only; you may need to adapt our resources to suit your own outdoor learning environment and group; you should only use resources in which you have the necessary qualifications, skills, experience and insurance to do so; and should use our resources in a professional and sensible manner.

If you wish to gain the necessary qualifications and skills to facilitate full use of our resources, please visit the ‘Courses and Services‘ section of our website for our up-coming course dates.

Are resources updated or new ones added?

Constantly! We are a ‘working’ site in that we are constantly reviewing our current resources whilst uploading new and exciting activities and documents in line with the latest developments in outdoor learning. Ensure you never miss out by keeping your subscription up to date.

Can I link the different starter/ adult-led/ extended learning/ plenary activities into each session?

Absolutely! Our resources are open to be used in a way which best suits the needs of your establishment. You are free to pick and choose which activities you wish to do from each section in line with your objectives and any time or space constraints. Many of the different activities can easily link to create themes and topics. For an overview, you could try to input a ‘key word’ into the search facility.

What if I can't find a resource?

Type ‘keywords’ into our search facility to list relevant resources.
