The outdoor classroom is a world full of opportunities for creating, exploring and learning. Much emphasis is placed on outdoor learning in the Foundation Stage but once children enter Key Stage 1, the outdoor environment is often not used to the same degree. Considerable evidence exists to indicate that outdoor learning allows children to develop their knowledge and skills in unique ways that add value to their classroom experiences.
