Playing outdoors is a powerful experience for children. Learning outdoors created lasting memories and build awareness of the environment. Children are more active when they play outdoors, which is essential for a healthy development. Benefits include:
- Better Social Skills
- Enhanced Problem Solving
- Team Working Skills
Outdoor Classroom Day is a day to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play. Thousands of schools around the world will take lessons outside and prioritise playtime. Lessons learnt outdoors, whether maths, science or language, often stay with us for life. Being outdoors helps children focus, boosts creativity and imagination, and can simply be more fun.
This year’s Outdoor Classroom Day is on Thursday 18th May 2017.
