Benefits of outdoor learning

Helps to reduce childhood obesity

Increased movement and exercise outside of PE lessons offers additional opportunities for children to build healthier lifestyles.

Engages all learners

The Outdoor Classroom supports scaffolded learning techniques set by teachers and differentiated course lengths to support a wide variety of physical abilities.

Boosts mental well-being

Outdoor activities promote positive mental well-being by offering breaks from intense classroom sessions, while remaining educational and valuable.

Develops social skills

Engaging in team work and collaborative learning encourages children to build stronger communication skills and learn about compromise and listening.

Helps to improve cognitive function

Physical activity can improve cognitive function in people of all ages, especially in children which is valuable for improved attainment back in the classroom.

Teaches respect for the natural world

Spending more time outside offers children the ability to develop an understanding of more aspects of nature and the importance of respecting their environment.
