The Covid lockdown has emphasised how important spending time outdoors is for our mental health, to discover and experience our local environment.
What can we do with the children outdoors?
by Mrs Merrills
There is a huge amount of information on the internet with ideas for learning outside the classroom, the great thing is that the children may not even be aware that they are learning!!
One of my favourite websites that I use with my own children, and when I am running outdoor sessions in school, is Nature Detectives. Have a look at the huge range of activities that they offer http://www.treetoolsforschools.org.uk/menu/_ga=2.105383940.686809035.1584636192-522979953.1581964694
