Outdoor Classroom Day

Outdoor Classroom Day - also called Empty Classroom Day - happens twice a year and is an event that tries to encourage teachers, parents and carers to take their lessons and teachings outside.

There are some great benefits to outdoor learning, including improved teamwork and creativity, interest in nature and improve levels of exercise and fitness. The purpose of Outdoor Classroom Day is to make this a normal part of every child's school day.

Here are some ideas you could try:

  • Go for a walk
  • Build a den in the woods or in the garden
  • Find mini beasts in a scavenger hunt
  • Plant some vegetables or flowers
