Outdoor Classroom Day 2019

Outdoor Classroom Day is a global campaign to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play. On the day, thousands of schools around the world take lessons outdoors and prioritise playtime.

For over 40 year's Rockley has been a huge supporter of learning outside the classroom and actively provides opportunities for schools and teachers across the country. Thousands of young people every year get to improve their health and mental well being and create a greater connection with nature through outdoor play. With this at the forefront we are pleased to be supporting Outdoor Classroom Day. 

In 2018, over 3.5 million children worldwide took part, more than 550,000 of those were in the UK and Ireland. 

Outdoor learning improves children’s health, engages them with learning and leads to a greater connection with nature. Play not only teaches critical life skills such as resilience, teamwork and creativity, but is central to children’s enjoyment of childhood.

When teachers take learning outdoors they report some powerful impacts: Children’s behaviour improves, whole classes are excited to learn, and individuals who feel inhibited by the curriculum often thrive in an outdoor environment.  When adults think back to their own happiest memories of childhood, they frequently recall the joy of playing outdoors. Play is not only central to children’s enjoyment of childhood, but teaches critical life skills such as problem-solving, teamwork and creativity.
