  • Outdoors Is Great For Education – In Any Weather!

    Most people will admit, that when the weather isn’t right, they tend to spend more time indoors. We just don’t want to be outside when we could get too cold, too hot, wet, or have an accident on a slippery surface, and we often extend these restrictions to children in our care. Additional problems arise when health and safety concerns come into play. Keeping children safe often means we are someti...

  • Benefits of Outdoor Learning in Secondary Schools

    People regularly associate outdoor learning with Early Years, however outdoor leaning is just as important as children grow through Primary School and into Secondary School.

  • Keeping The Calm

    Children learn well when they are fully engaged with their learning activities. Keeping that enthusiasm going is critical for retaining their interest but in some scenarios, their enthusiasm can quickly turn into overexcitement. While this can be great to see, it can also be detrimental. When over excited, children can be less aware of their surroundings and place themselves in danger. They can al...

  • Look After Your Canopy, And Your Canopy Will Look After You

    This year’s forecast for the winter is looking like we are set for heavy snowfall. Those who own canopies should be careful during these periods as while canopies are strong, the excessive weight that can be placed on them during heavy snow could damage them. Even if we don’t have a bad year with snow, the winter weather often leads to scenarios where regular maintenance should be carried out to p...

  • Getting Your Students Physically Engaged

    There is plenty of literature and advice about children being physically active; their activity is part of the Early Years curriculum and research has shown that children who are physically engaged are more likely to achieve academically. Every time a child completes a challenge their self-esteem gets a boost. These challenges can be anything from learning the alphabet to being able to jump ten ti...

  • Active Behaviour

    The number of children who are obese by the time they start secondary school is rising. Now one-in-four children can be classified as obese, and this is bad news for their health. Often as children get older, they lose their interest in sporting competitions and begin to spend more time behind screens. Yet, when they are younger, it is hard to get children to stop moving. So, what happens and how ...

  • Get Creative With Creative Play

    Creative play is one of the best ways children learn. It helps them to develop problem-solving skills, improve their self-esteem and grow their imagination. It should be part of any learning environment, especially during the early years. If recognisable objects are repeatedly used at home and in the learning environment, creative play can be stifled. An example of this is play dough. While an exc...

    There are many items that I’m sure you regularly re-use for creative play rather than throw in the bin or recycle, but I imagine there are also many items that you can re-use that may have slipped your mind.
