A School Trip To Remember!

More and more educational institutions are realising the huge benefits that are to be reaped from outdoor learning. Research by the Duke of Edinburgh Awards and The Scouts Associations showed that 86% of primary schools and 99% of secondary schools offer their pupils at least one residential trip during their time in school.

School residential trips can help children to grow in ways that indoor classroom teaching doesn’t always allow. Not only can outdoor learning help children to increase their confidence and learn lifelong skills, it also makes unforgettable, fun memories.

Benefits of Outdoor Learning

According to the Council of Outdoor Learning there are various benefits to learning outdoors that aren’t always obvious. Some of these benefits include children having a chance to experience different types of weather and seasons, develop their imaginations and learn to respect nature.

Playing and learning outdoors also gives children joy, they are active, see new and exciting things and learn to appreciate their natural environment.
