Outdoor learning with Wicksteed Playgrounds

May 20, 2020

During these unprecedented times, Wicksteed is fully aware of the challenges that many schools will face when it comes to welcoming children back into the school environment.

Outdoor learning

With the many changes that are due to take place over the coming months, why not make use of the space you have outside of the classroom? Moving the classroom outdoors into the fresh air makes it easier to maintain social distancing with well thought out positioning and better seating arrangements. You can breathe new life into storytime or simply add to a pre-existing garden arrangement. An outdoor classroom doesn’t need to cost the earth and a change of scenery is guaranteed to bring a smile to pupils faces.

Creating an outdoor classroom

An outdoor classroom can be as simple or expansive as you wish. Elements like a playground stage or a storyteller chair create great focal points for school children to gather around and seating can come in the form of simple wooden benches or you could always add a dash of colour to your outdoor classroom with our Magic Toadstools.
