Help your school improve their outdoor space this spring

Having a well-designed, versatile outdoor space is an important factor for any school. Not only does this provide the children with an exciting setting to play in, it can enhance the whole school environment. Outdoor play is important in helping children develop socially and emotionally but also promotes exercise, which ensures children are keeping healthy, while helping to develop their fine and gross motor skills. As well as this, outdoor learning – especially that which is founded in play types such as role-play – is a great way to make lessons more exciting and fun, as well as giving the children a variety of learning experiences rather than just being stuck in a classroom all day.
