Outdoor Learning broadens horizons and stimulates new interests.
Outdoor Learning is a broad term that includes: outdoor play in the early years, school grounds projects, environmental education, recreational and adventure activities. It can provide a dramatic contrast to the indoor classroom and help children to become successful learners.
Active learning readily develops the learning skills of enquiry, experiment, feedback, reflection, review and cooperative learning. It helps to bring many school subjects alive whilst also providing experiential opportunities for fulfilling the National Curriculum.
There is no limit to the experiences and curiosities that outdoor environments and activities can arouse. Children frequently discover new abilities and interests that surprise themselves and others.
Safety codes provide clear boundaries and learning goals give clear direction. Children become more risk aware.
