We know that the Great British Weather can be a deterrent for taking pupils outdoors. “The weather is too bad” or “it’s far too rainy” can be go-to reasons to stop rainy day play, keeping lessons and playtime indoors.
But, given the right gear, there is nothing like the freedom of splashing around in puddles!
By simply re-thinking our approach to weather, we can offer exciting, stimulating activities that are not stifled by the weather, but enhanced by it. Mud pies, nature paintings and rain gauges are just some of the ways we can connect children with nature. The options are endless!
Don’t forget to download and share the latest in the #MythBusters series. Together we can make 1 November’s Outdoor Classroom Day the biggest one yet!
