Outside Every Day – Step out into the sunshine with us as we explore the powerful benefits of outdoor learning…
Outdoor learning is a broad term that covers many types of activities – whether it’s an adventurous week-long expedition, a day trip to the coast, or simply spending part of your regular school timetable in the great outdoors.
Beyond the obvious benefits of physical activity, getting outside every day and taking your curriculum outdoors can help children feel a sense of belonging in their community, improve their social skills, develop meaningful relationships with others and build up their resilience.
After a year of disruption and repeated lockdowns, some pupils will have spent very little time outside, especially if they don’t have access to a garden, yard or private outdoor space.
Others will have revelled in having the time and space to reconnect with nature. Whatever the lockdown experience of your cohort, with Covid-19 being proven to spread less easily outdoors, now is the perfect time to recommit to spending a little time every day outdoors with your pupils.
Whether you’re already passionate about regularly gathering round the firepit for a grammar session or are simply interested in dipping your toe into the water of outside learning, we’ve got advice and ideas for promoting the calming properties of alfresco education, how to get outside when you have a limited budget, incorporating the outdoors into your recovery curriculum and ideas for starting simple with natural story sessions.
