My name is Mrs Mehmet and I am the Outdoor Learning Champion at Churchfields Infant School.
At Churchfields we love to take our learning outdoors to produce active, healthy, hands on learners.
In a classroom with no walls a child can explore, experiment, build resilience and gain a sense of well-being.
Contact with natural world experiences unique to the outdoors helps us to understand and respect nature. It is a wonderful opportunity to build resilience, play safely and freely and learn to manage risk.
Being outside has been shown to engage and motivate children. ‘Learning outside for just one lesson a week boosts learning and behaviour’ say researchers.
