Outdoor Learning

Outdoor Classroom Day - Thursday 5th November , 2020

 

Outdoor Classroom Day is a global movement to inspire and celebrate outdoor play and learning, at home and at school. On Outdoor Classroom Day itself, which has two dates each year, teachers celebrate with a special day outdoors for their class.

In response to the coronavirus crisis, the movement looks a bit different in 2020 – see our latest statement on Outdoor Classroom Day and coronavirus.

The next Outdoor Classroom Day is coming up on 5 November 2020 and the theme will be Love the Outdoors!

Children are spending less time outdoors than ever before and this is affecting their health, wellbeing and love of the natural world. Time outdoors – on Outdoor Classroom Day and every day – will make children happier and healthier, as well as helping them form habits that will stick with them for life. They will have a love of the natural world and will take action to protect it.

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
