A primary school in Loughborough is the first to take part in a project using local woodland to teach children about the environment.
Education secretary Nicky Morgan will launch the Woodland Trust's 'Schools into Woods' project at Outwoods Edge Primary today.
Over the next two years, the Trust aims to help 40 primary schools across the UK make the most of their local woodland.
"Teaching in woods is free, it fits in with the national curriculum, and no extra training is needed.
"It provides a really inspiring setting for learning, and not only will this encourage children to better understand and appreciate the natural environment, it will help them develop practical and social skills that will nurture self-esteem and confidence."
