When teachers take learning outdoors they report some powerful impacts:
Children’s behaviour improves, whole classes are excited to learn, and individuals who feel inhibited by the curriculum or routines often thrive in an outdoor environment.
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.
Children who have the freedom to play today — making friends, getting lost in the moment, having fun — are better prepared for whatever tomorrow throws at them.
