BLOG: Improve wellbeing and go outside!

0.0 rating

Why does going outside improve wellbeing? 

  • We move more when we go outside this improves our mood and health, uses excess energy and allows us to relax more when inside. 
  • Sensory – touching natural things
  • Healthy germs in mud
  • Connecting with nature
  • Connecting with each other
  • Less structure
  • More discoveries
  • Canvas changes
  • Releases happy hormones
  • Less confliction
  • Fresh air

What can you do to get your school outside more?

We would love you all to train on The Muddy Puddle Teacher approach but for now, try a few of these: 

  • Start a walking circle first thing in the morning when parents arrive with children, they walk around the yard and watch them chat, feel good and all leave one another ready for a great day!
  • Try a similar thing after school
  • Ask staff to look at their Science topics is there anything in there that would be enhanced if taken outdoors?
  • Send a questionnaire to staff, do they take lessons outside of not why? Get their feedback and reflect, discuss ways of moving forward. 
  • Improve clothing, ask parents to bring wellies in, contact charity shops for spares or put outdoor learning clothing on the uniform list. 
  • Hold a special outdoor learning day such as Bring a stick to school day, Ditch the plastic and much more. We have packs click on our website
