Geography Fieldwork in a Forest

Battram Woods, Leicestershire

Battram Woods, LE67 1GA

As part of the Geographical Association’s “National Festival of Fieldwork”  join the RFS Education team for a day exploring the ways in which woodlands can be used for Geography fieldwork.

What does the course cover?

  • Explore Battram Wood, a fascinating case study of how The National Forest has been used as a vehicle for regeneration of former coalfield communities.
  • Take part in practical activities which can be used with your class in any local woodland.
  • Gain skills to give your students an insight into a sector which is a major employer of Geography graduates.

Who is it for?

  • The training will be led by two experienced teachers and is suitable for teachers of Key stage 2 and above.
  • Please state the age groups you work with and your type of school at time of booking so that we can make sure that we tailor the content to the people attending.

How do I book?

This course is being offered free as part of the Geographical Association’s “National Festival of Fieldwork” but places are limited and we expect demand to be high. To book your place, please email learning@rfs.org.uk
