Take the class outside
Geographer, teacher and GetOutside Champion, Alan Parkinson, explores why our kids should be learning outside every day.
Sarah Whiting is passionate about both children and adults spending more time outside creating, exploring and discovering.
Through her blog, she shares her creative ideas to inspire families to spend more time outdoors.
With a focus on nature crafts, foraging and developing outdoor skills, she believes that everyone, whatever their age, gains huge benefit from spending time outside connecting with nature.
She says "Children love spending time in wild settings. It encourages exploration and imaginative play, and nature really does provide everything needed to keep them entertained. Playing in a natural environment allows kids to discover and learn, test themselves and take risks - all things that are crucial for their development and well-being.
