Wales Outdoor Learning Week

By | 1 April 2022

This week is #WalesOutdoorLearningWeek.

First held in 2019, the Week was created by the Wales Council for Outdoor Learning to encourage and inspire teachers, learning groups and families across Wales to embed outdoor learning within school and family life and reap its many benefits.

Evidence shows that it improves health and wellbeing – like guarding against obesity and reducing the symptoms of stress and ADHD. It is also good for the environment because it can help prevent the loss of environmental knowledge and encourages lifelong positive behaviours – helping us all to look after our world for the future.

Recent research also shows that learning outdoors can have a positive impact on individual and group performance, helping to improve core skills like problem solving and communication.

Over the years, we have helped schools to bring their learning and play outdoors with the installation of our canopies. Take a look at some of our recent installs across Wales:
