Active learning is now being considered as an important area to a well-developed curriculum. Outdoor learning only provides opportunities for children to use big movements and to move faster. The Muddy Puddle Teacher Approach works on this very purpose that children need to move for the brain to be engaged, focused and to absorb the information being received. Active lessons even if for 10 minutes here and there can make a substantial difference to the wellbeing of the child and the educator who is delivering the lesson. To find more methods to support an active curriculum try heading to BBC and watch and join in some of there ‘Super Movers’ videos. https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers

Here are 3 top outdoor learning ideas to get you started :

  1. Make sure the children have the right clothing - bring a muddy bag in or dress for mud that day!
  2. Make it messy and muddy - why not you are outside!
  3. Stick to natural resources - less clearing up for you and more kind to the environment.

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.
