What is Outdoor Classroom Day?
On two days of the year, a global movement in the name of Outdoor Classroom Day, takes place to inspire making outdoor activity part of every child’s day – Teachers are encouraged to take children outdoors to play and learn!
Although there are only 2 recognised ‘days’ to promote taking the classroom outdoors, the Outdoor Classroom Day community campaign all year round, as the importance of being outdoors is highly evidenced.
To celebrate this fantastic day, we launched a competition on World Book Day, giving the chance for one lucky school to WIN an Outdoor Classroom worth over £10,000!
We ran this competition through social media and the winner was…..
RISHTON METHODIST SCHOOL!
We ensured the classroom would be installed for Outdoor Classroom Day, so that the pupils of the school could enjoy learning outdoors.

We have identified 7 important benefits of taking the classroom outside:
