Tap the Sky
National School Grounds Week
Tap the Sky!
National School Grounds Week is LTL’s annual campaign to show just how easy – and worthwhile - it can be to take teaching and learning outdoors. Research tells us that learning beyond the classroom is often more memorable and helps children make sense of their learning. In fact, Ofsted said, “When planned and implemented well, learning outside the classroom contributes significantly to raising standards and improving pupils’ personal, social and emotional development.”
This year we're teaming up with Learning through Landscapes (LTL) to deliver a week long programme of ideas, inspiration and support for schools and early years settings across the UK to ‘Tap the Sky’. Throughout the week we will be encouraging you to get children outdoors to learn about water, experiment with it and play with it – while also thinking about ways of conserving it. We'll be providing resources to help children learn about where water comes from, what it is, how it is used and how they can make their schools, homes and communities more water efficient.
When: 18th – 22nd June 2012
Where: your school grounds or outdoor space!
