Outdoor Classrooms provide the luxury of exploration and what’s more, they’re only a stone’s throw away from your school which means that you can use them whenever you like and for as long as you like.
Although every Outdoor Classroom and teaching canopy is different, they are each designed to transform your school playground into something exciting yet educational.
Importance Of Outdoor Learning.
Taking lessons outside of the classroom can be beneficial for students and staff alike. The Outdoor Classrooms that we design at Setter Play are great if you’re looking to open up new and innovative learning experiences that encourage students to use their imagination, to explore, share, learn and create.
Our Outdoor teaching canopies are also recommended if your aim is to balance the school curriculum and to make it more fun. With children spending so much time indoors, there can be several health implications, take childhood obesity for example.
Vitamin D and Vitamin O are needed to help with concentration, memory and alertness and spending time indoors is likely to result in a vitamin deficiency, hence why outdoor learning is so important! Despite being a potent way to learn, our Outdoor Classrooms can have various health benefits, so be sure to check them out here.
Why do you need an Outdoor Classroom?
The Outdoor Classrooms are designed and manufactured to suit your exact requirements. There are countless reasons why you should consider investing in an Outdoor Classroom from Setter Play, here are just a few of them:
- Make the most of nature and naturally occurring resources
- Provide practical/hands-on learning opportunities
- Tap into children’s curiosity
- Enhance social skills
- Teach children to communicate effectively
- Encourage teamwork.
Outdoor Classrooms and teaching canopies can boost the morale of all individuals as well as raising spiritual and sensory awareness. Our outdoor learning facilities can increase the physical and mental health of children, as well as improve their motivation levels.
Needless to say that children love playing outdoors, so why not take the classroom outside and combine learning with outdoor play? Lessons that are taught outside the classroom are considered to be more memorable and improve the behaviour of all students which can be linked closely to attainment.
Incorporating outdoor learning into the curriculum.
An Outdoor Classroom allows children to engage more with lessons. To reduce tedium and distraction, teaching outside the classroom is a fantastic way to develop skills, knowledge and understanding but can also provide opportunities for the risk-takers.
Sitting in a classroom can be boring for teachers too, not just students. In providing outdoor learning facilities, we can help to improve concentration and attention-span, making the school day more enjoyable and interesting.
The teaching canopies are designed to offer shelter which allows you to take classes outside, come rain or shine.
At Setter Play, our Outdoor Classrooms extend much further than early years- they can be tailored to meet the requirements of all school year groups, focusing on the challenges and stresses of everyday life.
