Outdoor Fun

Get the kids outdoors! “Keep your children wild- don't make them grow up too fast. Let them spend their days in the sunshine using their imagination.

Getting little ones outdoors at nursery and reception is a great opportunity for outdoor learning and time away from artificial lighting and screens. Outdoor learning is a valuable educational approach that takes advantage of the natural world and outdoor environments as settings for learning.

You can make outdoor engagement as simple or complex as you like. We love these outdoor writable shapes for outside playtime. Making the outdoor learning experience makes play time more enjoyable. With Blackboard paint - playing outside on dry days can be even more fun. 


Benefits of outdoor blackboard play ... 

  • Interactive Displays: Magnetic walls can serve as interactive displays for educational materials. Teachers and students can use magnets to hang up posters, artwork, diagrams, and educational resources, making it easy to change and update the content as needed.
  • Alphabet and Numbers: Have large, colorful letters and numbers on the board to help children learn the alphabet and basic counting.

  • Plant and Nature Observations: In the garden or outdoor area, you can set up a section for kids to record observations about plants, insects, and other outdoor elements. Include drawings and labels.
