Clear your diary and save the dates for #WythnosDysguAwyrAgored / #WalesOutdoorLearningWeek and celebrate it at some of Wales’ greatest playing and learning spaces – our heritage sites! 

How will you join in? 

Wales Outdoor Learning Week is for people of all ages to develop lifelong positive learning, health, and well-being behaviours. So come on, let’s all get involved! For those looking to link to the Welsh Curriculum, the theme this year is Ethical and Informed Citizens. 

It doesn’t need to be complicated or costly to engage your senses or learn something new. 

Ditch the screens and take yourself, your family, or your class, out and about. Slow down and focus in on what’s around you. 

Outdoor learning contributes to all 7 Wellbeing Goals as well as providing ‘opportunities and activities that expand horizons within and beyond the traditional learning environment of the classroom.’ 

It provides a wonderful opportunity to get active and experience all the benefit from learning in and about our historical buildings and the environments they sit in. Why not look at your local site today, stimulate you imagination and capture

Whether you visit a staffed or unstaffed sites, explore the spaces where our history took place and the nature around them. Maybe get creative, sketching or writing about what you see and how it makes you feel, or practice your wellbeing activities like yoga or tai chi, or measure a castles height, or count the stairs as part of a maths lesson.

Our historic places make a great extension to school or home learning now or any time. See Learn | Cadw ( and Education Visits
