Landscapes Naturally share Advice to Support Schools
How has your school been getting on since welcoming back students for the new school year? Landscapes Naturally have recently shared some great tips to help you take learning outside, to provide engaging lessons in a safe environment.
Felicity Robinson is a WEN member and Founder of Landscapes Naturally. She was recently asked by the school grounds charity Learning through Landscapes, to share some advice for schools going back after the lockdown.
In this insightful document, Felicity provides some great tips and practical guidance to help your school use the outdoors and your grounds as learning spaces, to maximise fresh air, active learning, and access to the natural world for children and staff too.
Felicity says “There has been a seismic shift in how we all live in the world. Children and adults alike have had to cope with unprecedented change.
Evidence shows how beneficial the outdoors can be to building health, resilience and attainment.
Bring your creativity and experience to finding more ways to take your classes outside more regularly for their, and your, health and wellbeing. Use the space and opportunities that your grounds have to offer, as you work with your children back in school.”
It is clear that outdoor learning can be hugely beneficial, particularly during the current climate, helping to improve staff and students’ mental health and wellbeing, fostering their creativity and keeping them engaged.
