1. Make learning engaging

Take maths outside and have children estimate how long it would take to run, hop and skip a field. They can discuss it and graph it back in the classroom.

  1. Design relevant classes

Many concepts which seem too difficult to get a grasp of in the classroom are a lot easier to understand in the big wide world when they’re set in context.

  1. Nurture creativity

Instead of learning about castles are you able to take your pupils to a real castle ruins and have them act in role? Their imaginations will run wild.

  1. Play & experimentation

Infants learn a huge amount about volume and textures with simple sand and water play, whilst juniors enjoy becoming nature detectives and learning about insects and their habitats.

  1. Improve attendance

If you’re able to build outside play and trips into your curriculum, you’ll inevitably find attendance will spike too.

  1. Reduce behaviour problems

Children are less likely to act up if the whole class has to go back to learning maths inside.

  1. Grab the environment

Community learning develops responsible citizens, that can be tough to learn in the classroom.

  1. New opportunities

Museums, galleries, zoos and farms can provide learning experiences that won’t be forgotten fast.

  1. Stay healthy

Even pupils who aren’t keen on PE can usually be tempted by a fun learning game without the pressure of needing to ‘win’.

  1. Limitless resources

No matter how tight your budget, all you need is imagination to develop free, meaningful learning opportunities.
