With Outdoor Classroom Day just around the corner, the RSPB are offering Early Years and Primary Schools exciting, curriculum-linked, outdoor learning sessions across Greater Manchester.
Outdoor Classroom Day is a worldwide campaign to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play which takes place on 23 May.
Rachel Robinson, RSPB Schools Outreach Officer for Greater Manchester said: “Our workshops are the perfect opportunity for pupils to engage in Outdoor Classroom Day. Getting outside of the classroom is important as studies have shown it improves children’s wellbeing and engages them with learning. The RSPB has helped over 17,000 children in Greater Manchester to experience nature first hand with our outdoors project, encouraging problem-solving, teamwork and creativity. We have a wide selection of engaging sessions and it’s easy to get involved!”
To take part in #OutdoorClassroomDay with help from the RSPB, get your school involved by visiting rspb.org.uk/schoolsoutreachmanchester where full details of the sessions and costs can be found.
Rachel added: “Teachers give us great feedback about our outreach. 85% rate their experience as “excellent”, and we’re very proud that we’ve been awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge. These are quality sessions with strong curriculum links that will inspire your class to take an interest in nature.”
