Outdoor Learning in the Early Years, Helen Bilton
What is this strategy about?
Don’t feel that explicit learning can’t take place outdoors - plan in line with your current curriculum aims when planning your outdoor activities.
What is outdoor learning?
Outdoor learning is learning that takes place outside the classroom. It usually refers to organised learning which takes place in an outdoor setting and is an active approach to learning.
What are the benefits of outdoor learning?
Outdoor learning allows children to understand nature while giving them space to learn through active movement. The change of environment can engage children and keep them interested in learning while enjoying the natural environment.
