Learning resources for the Wales Coast Path

Share this page with fellow educators and teachers

The Wales Coast Path is an ideal place to learn skills and gain experience in an educational setting.

The 870 mile / 1,400km long path provides an inspirational backdrop for future generations to come and visit one of the most popular walking routes in Wales and the UK.

Natural Resources Wales has produced learning resources based on the Wales Coast Path for educators and teachers.

The resources, activities and games link in with the four purposes of the Curriculum for Wales and will deliver many aspects of the cross curricular skills within the Literacy and Numeracy Framework (LNF) and Digital Competence Framework (DCF).

Go to the learning resources

The resources will help educators and teachers to teach skills and gain experience in researching, planning, organising and promoting a major visitor destination in Wales.  Example activities are:

  • Researching, planning and organising a day visit to the path to using various online tools like Google Maps, AA route planner and our distance tables to work out realistic walking distances.
  • Creating marketing materials such as a newsletter, website and poster to promote the path.

You will also learn about current major issues that affect the Welsh coastline such as:

  • the impact of plastic pollution along the coastline,
  • the ever-changing coastal dune system in North East Wales at Gronant, Denbigh, Talacre and Flintshire– all of these places are on the path.
  • the rare and endangered marine life that live in Welsh waters.

Staying with Urdd on the path

If you take your learners to Urdd’s Llangrannog or Cardiff Bay centres, we’ve teamed up with the Urdd to create some fun and interesting resource packs based the culture, heritage and biodiversity at these two centres on the path.

The resources highlight the opportunities for those who visit the camps to enjoy the path on their visit and explore their local path when they return home.
