Outdoor Classrooms by Setter Play!

If you’re looking to take lessons outside the classroom, you’re sure to find exactly what you’re looking for at Setter Play! Outdoor classrooms boost engagement, making lessons more enjoyable for students and teachers.

Lessons indoors are often seen to be tedious and repetitive which leaves children looking for distractions to keep themselves occupied. By taking lessons outside, students can learn in a way that’s creative and interesting.

Our outdoor equipment uses space effectively and assists with the development of all young individuals, providing them with ample opportunity to broaden their knowledge and understanding. When choosing to take lessons outdoors, you need to bear in mind the surroundings. The right outdoor classroom can promote sustainable development and suit the aesthetics of your school.

Make sure that you design your classroom carefully, accommodating for any equipment that will come in useful. Drawing a plan will allow you to decide where equipment can be installed without compromising safety or accessibility.

Another factor to consider when creating outdoor classrooms is how easy it is to keep students interested and engaged. Outdoor learning can prevent distractions, essentially boosting the concentration of young individuals.

Our Equipment.

The equipment that we supply for our classrooms ranges from canopies and shelters to benches and storage solutions which are found in our Outdoor Furniture and Extras collection. Any of our products are made to last and comply with Safety and Building Regulations.

Our canopies and shelters are designed to suit all weathers, allowing you to use the classroom whenever you see fit for purpose. The Canopies and Shelters that we supply are built to exact specification and make outdoor learning enjoyable for everyone.

Benefits of Outdoor Classrooms.

Learning outdoors is thought to have a powerful impact on children of all ages and abilities. There are countless ways that students and staff could benefit from an outdoor classroom, including the following:

  • Behaviour Improvements

When children feel more relaxed, they tend to work efficiently. Sitting in the classroom can not only cause discomfort for certain individuals but can affect their behaviour too. Planning lessons outdoors will help to maintain the concentration of the class, essentially preventing disruptions and distractions.

  • Skill Development

For some people, being outdoors can impact upon their ability to learn. Visual learners tend to benefit because the lessons are more memorable. Lessons taught outdoors can also develop problem-solving skills, offering a creative method for learning. Outdoor learning is guaranteed to develop the skills of students of all abilities, providing them with a sense of enthusiasm and fun.

Teamwork is yet another skill that can be enhanced throughout outdoor classrooms. Working outdoors enables students to communicate freely and join in.

  • Excitement to Learn

The addition of an outdoor classroom will instantly make lessons more enjoyable. Outdoor learning facilities are perfect for your school if you’re trying to encourage all individuals to participate, creating an environment that puts everyone’s mind at ease.

Taking the classroom outside is bound to be an exciting concept for students, which provides them with a luxury and makes learning fun.

  • Outdoor Play

Life skills can often be developed throughout outdoor play, making the outdoor classrooms even more desirable. Lessons that are taught outside can also have health benefits, encouraging children to be active and, in the long run, prevent childhood obesity.

Outdoor Classrooms and Teaching Canopies FAQs

There are many different options when it comes to choosing outdoor teaching furniture for your school – from roller-shutter and mono-pitch canopies to specially designed outdoor classrooms and pergolas. And here at Setter Play, we have everything your school needs to start introducing outdoor classes.

The furniture you choose, though, depends on a couple of different things, like the kind of lessons you'll be teaching and class sizes.

If your class sizes are relatively small, a wooden pergola or gazebo will be more than ideal – whilst something slightly bigger, like an outdoor classroom or a canopy, would be better if you’re teaching upwards of 25 children per class.

If you’re unsure which outdoor furniture would be best for your school, we’re here for you.
