Get out for the classroom on Thursday with Outdoor Classroom Day

Who likes lessons when they happen outside? Answer: most of us! Learning outdoors creates lasting memories, helps us build a greater awareness of the environment, provides more opportunities to think independently, and gets us engaged in feeling challenged and excited by learning. We are more active when they play outdoors, burning off calories and keeping fitter.

This Thursday, 18th May, our aim is to get as many children as possible learning and playing outside in 2017. For some schools, this will be an opportunity to try learning outside the classroom for the first time. For outdoor learning pros, the day will be a celebration of what they are doing already and a chance to inspire other schools to get involved. For everyone, Outdoor Classroom Day will show how easy and amazing it is to spend time outdoors every day. To find out how you can get out there with Outdoor Classroom Day, click here.
