School Outdoor Learning have shared this post (March 26, 2023) by a teacher and Forest School practitioner. She listens to the children she works with, and shares her thoughts.
This includes the insight ‘ What I hear from the children doesn’t just reinforce all the studies that show that outdoor learning is good for children and produces better results, but that it’s what they want. Without knowing about these studies, children are asking for more time outdoors. Not at leisure, but exploring and investigating, growing and planting, and using the space around them to learn in’.
