Outside In All Weathers
“Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up and snow is exhilarating; there is no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” John Ruskin 1819-1900.
Learning is constant for all children, it occurs anywhere and everywhere. There’s so much fun to be had outdoors, it really is all about the right clothing and a positive attitude.
- The amazing advantage of the great outdoors is space and freedom, crucial for the development of young children, their learning and confidence will reach another level when allowed to be active and independent.
- Learning outside the classroom also supports the development of a healthy and active lifestyle. It creates opportunities for physical activity, freedom of movement, big play, noise and a sense of well-being.
- Outdoor classrooms provide direct contact with the natural world and offer unique experiences. Children delight in discovery and investigation, from the weather and seasons, minibeasts and their habitats, flora and fauna and of course, everyone’s favourite, mud and mess!
