Come Outside…

Research has shown that many children are not developing the broadest range of skills, knowledge and experience as we tend to spend more time inside than previous generations.

This may bring benefits in learning technology skills or allow us to learn facts from books, computers and televisions but there is not always an opportunity to be active, work together and connect our ideas and creativity to the outside world in a ‘hands-on’ way.

Here’s a handy guide from Parentzone about outdoor learning in schools:

Luthermuir school is in a great location and we endeavour to take full advantage of our surroundings.
