Outdoor Classroom Day with Persil

May 2, 2017

Outdoor Classroom Day is a day to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play. On Thursday 18 May 2017, thousands of schools around the world will take lessons outside and prioritise playtime. Su and I are helping to promote this on #ExplorerKids throughout the whole month of May alongside Persil.

Just look at some of the wonderful pictures in our Instagram gallery for some inspiration.

Why is it so important? Outdoor learning improves children’s health, engages them with learning and leads to a greater connection with nature. Play not only teaches critical life skills such as resilience, teamwork and creativity, but is central to children’s enjoyment of childhood. Schools sign up and promise to hold at least one lesson outside. Last year, schools around the globe got involved through activities ranging from pond dipping and bug hunting to tree climbing and beachcombing.

 

 

 

It’s easy to get involved and there is something everyone can do.

If you’re a teacher and new to outdoor learning, why not use Outdoor Classroom Day to try it out? 

If you’re a parent, talk to your child’s school about the importance of outdoor learning and play. Ask them how they will get involved and offer to help out on the day if they need you.

 

If you are interested in taking part you can sign up here.
