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.”
