Outdoor learning has long been a method used in schools, but has it ever been managed well? No doubt, it is hard work to take the learning outside because of the weather and seasons. However, it’s also the weather and seasons that make it so fabulous too. There are many worthwhile institutes that can help make you more knowledgable in the area such as IOL. https://www.outdoor-learning.org/

There are also many other wonderful charities motivating schools, nurseries and teachers to educate children on the environment, reduce waste, look after nature and to go outside more. Encouraging early years children to be more environmentally friendly at school is a great start into a promising future for our world. By going outside more we are encouraging children to take a lot more notice of their environment and the nature within it.

Outdoor learning in primary schools is an essential way to bring wellbeing to the classroom.

Here are some muddy top tips to make a start in each key stage.

  • Outdoor Learning KS2 - Try taking 10-minute slots or brain breaks in between sessions. Do the Muddy Walk and Talk and just use it for general discussion or chat.
  • Outdoor Learning KS1 - Try taking phonics games outside. Choose a sound and use leaves
  • Outdoor Learning EYFS - If you can make sure there is an outside space that is accessible and start to reduce the plastic and have more natural objects. Such as leaves they can write on, stones to do art with. Strip back the made plastic objects and keep natural for optimum imagination and creative skills to be used.
