Outdoor Classroom Day is a global campaign to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play. On the day, thousands of schools around the world took lessons outdoors and prioritised playtime. In 2017, over 2.3 million children worldwide took part, almost 200,000 of those were in Australia.
Outdoor learning improves children’s health, engages them with learning and leads to a greater connection with nature. Play not only teaches critical life skills such as resilience, teamwork and creativity, but is central to children’s enjoyment of childhood.
Room 10 took the opportunity to participate in this day and had a great learning experience in the grounds of Leeming PS.
