Primary and Secondary Schools across Aberdeenshire

Simone Kenyon and Jo Hellier

Throughout June 2018


Over eight sessions Simone Kenyon and Jo Hellier collaborated with a range of primary and secondary schools in Aberdeenshire and with Cairngorms National Parks Education and Inclusion Officer Anna Fleming to facilitate workshops that focused on introducing Nan Shepherd’s work within the context of mountaineering and nature literature. Through this introductory lens they went on to work with numerous collaborative exercises that encouraged sensory exploration of outdoor spaces that incorporated all the senses.

These workshops form the basis for an Into The Mountain resource pack for schools, parents and children to encourage and champion sensory observation and exploration of outdoor spaces. This pack will be available from spring 2019.
