Supporting Outdoor Learning in Early Years and Primary Schools

Ask Scotland is an online information service provided by Scotland’s libraries that lets you get real answers from real people, without leaving your computer. Have a go yourself here: http://askscotland.org.uk
Your question will be sent to a librarian who will use their rich library collections to research your query and send back a personal response. We aim to provide you with reliable information that you can trust, whether for study, research or just plain curiosity.
Ask Scotland is coordinated by the Scottish Library and Information Council (SLIC), the advisory body to the Scottish Government on libraries, and is staffed by librarians and library assistants in Scotland’s libraries. It is a non-profit service, jointly funded by the Scottish Government through the Public Library Quality Improvement Matrix and the participating libraries.
Also, a wee reminder of Education Scotland’s excellent Studying Scotland site full of resources to support deep and rich learning about Scotland’s history, culture and landscape.
And if it is Scottish History you are interested in then delve in to the past through Education Scotland’s Scotland’s Historywebsite.
