Creating outdoor learning activities for your pupils

When considering a new lesson plan or methods of teaching your pupils, many of the schools we have worked with wished to move things to their outdoor area to engage their pupils. Outdoor learning activities are extremely popular, helping children to learn away from the classroom and develop new ways of understanding information.

Inactivity rates are on the rise with more children preferring electronic gadgets over physical activities. We design fun, engaging school playground markings that keep children physically engaged and motivated to play outside.

However, finding the best methods of engaging your pupils can be difficult. To help you create outdoor learning opportunities we have rounded up some of our tips below.

Learning outside tips for teachers

  • Get creative with resources and equipment

Involving different resources and equipment during outdoor learning activities will help teaching staff to keep the attention and engagement of pupils. Teaching various subjects is achievable however it is key to have a range of resources and equipment at your disposal.

  • Involve games and exercise

Using creativity to help pupils learn whilst engaging in games, improves social skills with their peers. Games and exercise will help pupils to absorb information and lessons in a less formal setting and therefore reaching pupils who may prefer alternative methods of learning outside the classroom.

  • Install educational playground markings

By installing educational markings, these can be utilised as part of lesson plans and ideas for pupils of all ages. We have a huge range of school playground markings which cover topics such as maths, geography, history and science. Our team also create all of our thermoplastic markings from scratch, so if you have specific needs in mind simply reach out to our team to discuss your ideas.

Utilising playground markings for outdoor education

When creating outdoor learning activities and opportunities for your pupils, it is essential to provide resources for pupils to engage with. By installing creative playground markings, many of the schools we work with have been able to engage pupils in learning outside, including lesson plans and physical activity.

We specialise in creating unique playground experiences for children of all ages and abilities, therefore by working with our experienced team, you can feel confident your project will exceed expectations.

Our team will work alongside your teaching team and pupils to create markings which encourage physical activity, social play and help your pupils learn to engage with outdoor learning. Examples of our playground markings can be found via our website, however we also provide bespoke designs, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our team to discuss your requirements.Β
