We have schools throughout the UK now using our approach to better support the learning inside by using the outside space! We are now carefully gathering up data to soon provide research on how this muddy puddle approach can impact on children of varying abilities and personalities. The Muddy Puddle Teacher approach together with outdoor learning really is providing something special not just for the child but teacher too.  We will be compiling the teacher questionnaire shortly and revaling all results in our outdoor learning news section.
