Benefits of Outdoor Play

Benefits of Outdoor Play

As the summer months approach, it is the perfect time to get outdoors and be active.  Playing outdoors and being active is extremely important for early year’s children. Only 21% of boys and 16% of girls aged 5-15 are achieving the recommended daily levels of physical activity.

The British Journal of Sports Medicine reported findings of a study which demonstrated that the interest in exercise wanes during childhood, around the ages of six. It is therefore vitally important for children to engage in play from an early age. Playing outdoors and being active, not only builds physical development but it also provides a gateway to other forms of exercise.

Schools Gather At National Digital Storytelling Day

Schools Gather At National Digital Storytelling Day

Teachers from schools across the UK gathered at Knebworth House in Hertfordshire last week to mark the start of National Share-a-Story Month.

Hosted by Discovery Education on 18th April, the Digital Storytelling Day showcased the very latest tools and ideas for using ed-tech in literacy, helping teachers to nurture a love of stories in every child.

Taking advantage of Knebworth’s famous dinosaur trail, teachers took part in a prehistoric QR coded treasure hunt, and learned how the bar-code technology can be used in literacy lessons.
